Kugel Noodle Casserole

Miss Jackie
This week's Sunday supper is dedicated to my friend Jackie who introduced me to this unbelievably yummy dish when we were in college.   On Sopranos Sundays our senior year we would make a big family meal to eat during the show.  Usually it featured Italian dishes but one Sunday Jackie made her mom's kugel.  My mind was BLOWN.  I never had anything like this before.   It kind of reminds me of our pineapple stuffing which is super sweet and warming.   Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did.   It will make a perfect "break the fast" dish for this weekend!!

4 tablespoons of cold butter cut into cubes (roughly 12 cubes)
4 eggs beaten
2 small boxes of raisins
8  oz can crushed pineapple with juice
2 large apples, sliced
brown sugar & cinnamon to taste

Preheat oven to 350 F
Grease a rectangular pan 9" x 13". 
Boil noodles 2 minutes under recommended time. Wash off in cold water.  Melt butter into noodles.  Add beaten eggs, apples, raisins, pineapple, sugar.  Mix all together.  Put into prepared pan.  Dot with cubed butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. 

Bake for one hour.  Be sure to check periodically to make sure top is not burning.  If it begins to brown heavily, cover with foil.
