I totally made this up! It's loosely based on a traditional, Jewish noodle kugel, but I wanted something that was also savory and had a lot of mushrooms and onions that I wanted to use. My husband said he never tasted anything like it before, but he really liked it, as did I. You could dramatically lower the calories by using fat free ricotta and fat free cream cheese, and you could spray the pan instead of the oil. I think that would probably cut your cals in half, but I had to calculate it for the way I made it.
