Kugel is just so damn good and definitely a once a year must.  I made this one last night. 

16 ounces egg noodles (wide)

1 pint cottage cheese

1 pint sour cream

1 cup sugar

6 tbsp. unsalted butter

6 eggs

cinnamon/sugar (optional currants or raisins)

Preheat the oven to 350.

Boil the noodles until they are done and then strain.  Put them back in the pot and egg the butter, sugar, sour cream, cottage cheese and eggs ( you could add 1 cup of raisins or currants here if you wanted).  Mix thoroughly.  Put this into a greased baking pan.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake for an hour and serve either warm or room temperature.
