Spinach Noodle Kugel
Typically a sweet casserole, this interpretation of kugel is made savory, with onion, spinach, and three types of cheese. Simple and wholesome, it complements the hearty Oven-Braised Beef Brisket and vegetables.
To prevent the kugel from being soggy, squeeze as much excess liquid from the thawed spinach as you can.
Preheat oven to 325°. Coat a 2-qt. baking dish with nonstick spray.
Cook noodles in a pot of boiling salted water 5 minutes; drain.
Combine cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, eggs, milk, onion, zest, lemon juice, and nutmeg in a large bowl using a hand mixer on medium speed. Stir in noodles and spinach and season with salt and pepper; transfer to prepared dish.
Top kugel with Parmesan; bake until top is golden and kugel is set, 45 minutes. Let kugel rest 5–10 minutes before serving.
