Microwave Sweet Noodle Kugel

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

What really brought me to this recipe is that it uses uncooked noodles. The standing time is very important, because if you are too impatient the noodles will come out a little too al dente to your liking.

This is the best recipe renovation! Being able to have a noodle kugel in a fraction of the time and with out having to heat up the kitchen on these hot summer days has been a blessing. It is easy as well. I have made a few minor adjustments, such as decreasing the sugar to 1/4 cup ( I like the brown sugar). Due to lactose intolerance, I have substituted Lactaid brands of cottage cheese and milk. I do not know that this has changed the outcome of the recipe and appears to work fine. My husband can now enjoy noodle kugel with out having to worry about adverse health issues. I have experimented with a variety of fruit alternatives too. Diced apricots, drained crushed pineapple and fresh from the bush blueberries have all been delicious alternatives to the raisins. The blueberries didn't make as "pretty" a kugel since they do release their juice where ever they want, but the taste was heavenly. As apple season approaches, I plan to substitute diced apples as the fruit. I do like the corn flakes crushed as the topping. Thanks you for expanding my kugel making adventures!
