We really enjoyed this kugel, thanks for sharing Chia!! Didn't change a thing, didn't even scale it down for two. We ate about half of it tonight and will finish it off tomorrow,(and probably the next day). I peeled the potatoes first and cut them in small pieces to boil them, then mash them. Was there a reason not to peel? The asparagus and potatoes went well together, but we were surprized that we could hardly taste the onions,we expected a stronger onion taste. I did use two medium. The paprika gave it a nice presentation. We enjoyed it very much but found it a teeny bit dry, DH put margarine on his, I will make it again, it would be a good company dish.

Asparagus is a favored vegetable in my house. This was interesting and a different preparation for me. The only minor alteration I made was to reduce the oil to 3 tablespoons. Tasted wonderful and has that comfort foodish quality. Enjoyed for lunch with a side salad--very nice. Thanks for posting.

My girl friend and I absolutely loved this and we had left overs that were just as good as the freshly cooked. We will definitely be making this again.
