This is the first time I've ever had this kugel, so I have nothing to compare it to. I was intrigued by the concept of sweet and peppery, so I had to try this. I really liked it (as did my whole family), and I'm pretty sure I'll be making this again. The only things I might change are to add a bit less oil, and a bit more pepper.

This turned out perfect. Just as I remember it taste as a kid back home in Jerusalem. The only thing I would change for next time is reduce the oil to 1/3 of a cup.
