Recipe by PetsRus

We love this sweet kugel! I buy the vermicelli for this in a little Turkish grocery store, I don't know or you will have to add more milk if you should substitute the vermicelli for broader noodles.

i had my doubts when making this, i never cook the pasta in milk. and after i let it sit for a few minutes it was all absorbed. but it came out delicious, a wonderful dairy kugel
