    twissis's Note:

    I'm on record as loving all things Czech (a legacy from my great-uncle Emil Placek). This recipe by Grete Willinsky from her "Kochbuch Der Buchergilde" was modified slightly by me, but will likely keep my record intact. This can be used as a side dish or paired w/a salad choice for a tasty & hearty meal. *ENJOY* ... Edited to Add: I agree w/the reviewer that the layering part of the prep is not necessary & have revised this recipe accordingly. :-)

      While the bacon obvously keeps this from the Kosher kitchen of my Bubby, it does remind me of her Kugel. I don't know that it makes a difference, but I added a cup of fresh peas and cooked cubed chicken to replace the bacon and reduce some of the fat. Also like Alskann used fat free sour cream, egg whites only and Pam. Very good as a main dish. Used a round 2 quart baking dish since the size wasn't specified. Next time may want to use an 8 inch to even out the cooking time.

      I was excited about this recipe because it reminded me of a savory Jewish noodle kugel and I LOVE farmer's cheese...and finally found a store that stocks it all the time. But, I found this not creamy enough. If just felt like there wasn't enough of the cheese/sour cream/egg mixture. I did make one change, eliminating the bacon and substituting grilled mushrooms, but that shouldn't have made a difference. I also used whole wheat noodles. Next time I would add more sour cream and stir it all together rather than layering it. I did love the caraway seeds and would never had thought of adding them!

      Yum!!! This was very good and heartier than I thought it would be. Very creamy, good flavors. While making this I thought perhaps it would be nice with some mushrooms, and yes mushrooms are alway good, this dish doesn't need it. I did omit the caraway seeds, just personal preference. I also omitted the butter & olive oil, using non-stick spray instead and used fat-free cottage chees and sour cream to cut back on calories. It was still nice and rich and we did not miss the fat. It was very easy to make. I just mixed it all together & baked it. Thanks for another keeper Twissis. I really liked this a lot!!
