Dried fruit kugel

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Medium wide egg noodles
8 ounces Low-fat cottage cheese (1%)
11 ounces Mixed dried fruit; coarsely chopped
8 ounces Light cream cheese; cut to small chunks
2 cups Low-fat milk (1%)
¼ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon Salt
2 larges Eggs; slightly beaten

Prepare the noodles as label directs. Don not add salt to the water.


Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a food processor with the knife blade attached, blend the cottage cheese until smooth.

In a large bowl, mix the cottage cheese with the dried fruit and the remaining ingredients. Stir in the noodles. Pour the mixture into an ungreased shallow 2½ quart baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes. (I like the crunchy noodles on top when the kugel is baked uncovered. However, if you prefer a more delicate top, cover the dish loosely with foil before baking.) The mixture will look wet in the center but will set upon standing, about 10 minutes.

Removed to a wire rack to cool slightly. If not serving the kugel warm, cover and refrigerate to serve cold later.
