Jerusalem Sweet-Hot Noodle Casserole/ Yerushalmi Kugel

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by scancan

This is a very unique dish that can be found all over Jerusalem. It is a noodle casserole with carmelized sugar and lots of black pepper. Serve this warm as a different kind of side dish. I originally got this recipe from a community cookbook that was given to me along with all the other brides that got married that same year. Recipe is from Susie Gale with only a minor change.

The best Yerushalmi kugel--I encourage people that heav never had this to try it! I made mine with fine egg noodles, otherwise i followed the recipe exactly-I covered this for the first 1/2 of the cooking time so that the top didnt get too brown-. Thanks Scanpan!
