"Lighten" Noodle Kugel (Dairy)

Submitted by: WESCOBAR

Introduction

This is a simple recipe which I have "lighten" up as much as possible. This nutritional values are with the fat free sour cream. I enjoy making this one as it allows me to be creative with different dried fruits such as mango, apricot. Also, can be made with fresh fruits if you desire.

It's adoptable for Passover by using Kosher forPassover noodles as well as Kosher for Passover ingredients. This is a splurg recipe for me but for once or twice a year it's a treat.

    Super delicious! But crazy filling. 3 inch x 3 inch is too big of a serving unless it's your main dish, which it well could be, as filling as it is! - 1/16/11

  • Used Splenda instead of sugar and left out the cranberries and almonds for the kind my momma used to make. The plain yogurt worked fine, too. Thanks for the recipe. - 1/29/11
