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

We didn't care for this very much - but I've never made or had kugel before. It was drier than I expected, and next time, I think I'd increase the milk by atleast another 1/2 cup (maybe even 3/4) but that would probably need another egg for the custard. I also added a couple of drops (literally) of almond essence which I liked in the pudding.
