This is a sweet side dish. Served Christmas Eve. A meatless meal! Vegetarians can use eggless noodles and veggie oil instead of butter.

This is a unique and flavorful side dish. I wasn't able to soak the raisins in rum, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was very quick and easy. I had never used poppy seed filling before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. They ended up giving the noodles a very nice flavor, although there were a few too many poppy seeds in it for my tastes.
