Creamy Kugel with a Nod Towards Italy

Creamy Kugel with a Nod Towards Italy

Contributed by Melissa Roberts

Kugel is the ultimate Jewish comfort food. Its variations are infinite, and sweet or savory, diet food this is not.

As a centerpiece for a dairy-based post Yom Kippur break fast, sweet kugels punctuate the theme of a sweet year to come. This version has Italian notes, but riffing on a kugel theme is as American as adding canned pineapple to the base, or sprinkling corn flakes on top.

Ricotta and egg yolks, standing in for the more traditional cottage cheese and sour cream, add lightness and richness. Lemon zest and liqueur soaked tart cherries provide a refreshing and sophisticated counterpoint, and the egg pappardelle, is a playful substitute for egg noodles.
