SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

SAVOURY BAKED NOODLES (KUGEL)

I love kugel, especially the savoury kind.  Well, in truth I love anything with pasta and cheese.  It’s the ultimate comfort food especially welcomed now that we are heading into some chilly days.  I call it my hibernation food.

This next recipe was made to be a complete meal with spinach and mushrooms and lots of dairy for protein.  I baked it no-oven-galley-style in my stove top Omnia but for you land folks it easily transforms to a more traditional cooking method

Look at all that noodley goodness. A few extra grinds of pepper and you are ready to dive in.

  1. Kat: I love your blog and look forward to your recipes, both for home and for the boat (25′ pilot house motorsailor). We live mid west coast US (Oregon) and don’t understand “celo”. Can you explain?

    Thanks so much and keep up writing your fresh and informative blog.

    1. Hi Daniel,. Nice to have you along and great hearing from another boater. “Celo” is (I think) short for celophane packaging. You know those clear packages of pasta? The packaging part isn’t really important and I should have just said noodles…as in egg noodles or broad noodles. You could use any pasta you like but this recipe lends itself well to the ‘noodley’ type. Hope this helps. /…Cheers, Kathy
