I found this recipe while searching for an additional kugel to add to my Passover holiday menu. This was a HUGE success. You can pre-make the kugel and then right before you start your seder as your dinner is being kept warm in the oven place it inside to reheat. When your family reaches the festive meal portion of the evening spread the preserves on top and serve.

This simple, easy, consistent noodle kugel was named "Yellow Kugel" by our former boarder (and still friend), Dvora, who had the bad fortune to live with us when I was pregnant with our third kid, and therefore NOT in the mood to cook. I was still able to handle this, so we ate a lot of it. Fortunately, Dvora didn't mind. (Me either) Adapted from a recipe in "The Makings of a Meal."
