When I lived in Pittsburgh, Mrs. Markovitz was my downstairs neighbor and landlord and a great cook. The smells from her house were amazing. This was one of her specialities especially around the Jewish New Year. The topping makes this irresistable!

Amazing kugel! The topping is divine and the pineapple gives it a nice sweet & tangy flavor. We really loved this kugel - I think this is one of the best tasting sweet noodle kugels I have ever eaten. Accurate, clear instructions as well. Thanks for sharing.

I made this the other day.. you MUST RATE dishes or you'll lose them! Grr, on me!! lol

Not only did I like it, but DH, who doesn't seem thrilled over any fruit or veggie dish loved this! Even though he says he doesn't like pineapple! I used fresh pineapple too and a sprinkling of raisins.. what a great childhood I had eating this!!

I cooked a large bag of egg noodles about 14oz (356 grams). 1 LB of pasta sounded too much for 6 eggs only. I reduced all the ingredients accordingly. I used 5 eggs and 2/3 of the canned pineapple. I decided to pass on the topping expecting the results to be very good. We could save some fat & calories! I broiled the kugel for a couple of minutes instead, this makes the top crunchier and browns the pasta very quickly. Overall this is a very tasty kugel. My husband asked me to make it again adding all the pineapple. I will try the topping next time to give it a more accurate review. Thank you for the recipe.
