Nutty Noodle Kugel

Noodle kugel is often made with things like butter, sour cream, cream cheese, and sugar. It’s a Yom Kippur break-the-fast favorite, but can fill up empty stomachs in seconds flat without much in the way of nutrition. We slim it down and even use whole-wheat noodles to enhance the good nutrition. And your kids will never know the noodles are whole wheat because they blend right in!
