I think this is my first noodle kugel so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. However, it is a great comfort food, and I found it to be very filling. I didn't think it was overly sweet with the sugar, but I could definitely taste some sweetness. I enjoyed the crunchiness from the crushed cornflakes. Thank you for sharing.

I've never had a kugel before and don't know how they are supposed to taste, but I found this to be a bit bland. A stronger cheese and/or some seasoning would probably help. I did like the mix of textures, a little crunchy on top and moist on the bottom. I probably won't make this again though.

Well, I did NOT grow up eating kugels and I think this one is wonderful and really tasty! The sweetness surprised me, but it was a great balance with the creaminess of the sour cream, cottage cheese and the light crunch of the top noodles. Loved it! (Didn't use corn flakes.)

have made MANY noodle kugels and this I found to be quite tasteless. Definitely needed some kind of zip, maybe some cinnamon or salt/ pepper or brown sugar. would not make again

To lighten this recipe further, you could use Splenda for the sugar, "I can't believe it's not butter", and egg substitute or egg whites for the eggs; and whole wheat noodles to make it healthier.

This is soooo great! Although it's a relatively plain-looking dish, it is great-tasting, & for me, at least, stirred old memories of my own grandmother making kugel! Thanks for sharing, & I'll be making this one again & again!

Great comfort food! I didn't use the corn flakes and I used full-fat sour cream; otherwise I followed the recipe closely. This made a mild, creamy casserole with a good texture. I have to admit, this made less than 8 servings for us (we took some pretty huge servings). :) Thanks for posting this one.
