Here’s a confession: I’ve been waiting to share this recipe with you for over a year now.
It was well over a year ago that the inspiration struck: Pumpkin Noodle Kugel. Brilliant, right? Everyone loves a good pumpkin recipe, especially with fall here and Thanksgiving around the corner. And who doesn’t love a freezer-friendly, delicious kugel side dish?
Anyway, I made this what feels like a lifetime ago. In my pre-cookbook author days. The recipe needed tweaking, and I shelved the idea until I could get a chance to work on it again. And then I got busy writing a cookbook, and that chance never seemed to materialized.
Fast forward over a year, to the next time pumpkin season hit. I was thinking about new pumpkin recipes, and promptly dusted this idea off, tweaked it, and came up with this winner. To be honest, I’m kind of sad that this recipe didn’t happen a year ago, because it’s so good – I feel like I’ve been depriving you!
But anyway. Let’s not cry over spilled kugel. The recipe is here, and it’s time for you to try it – you’re about to discover your newest favorite!
