This Rosh Hashanah recipe is from Marlene Sorosky's "Fast and Festive Meals for the Jewish Holidays." The applesauce replaces some fat, so it's a "lower-fat" holiday recipe. Beth. DOUBLE APPLE NOODLE KUGEL (12 servings) 16 ounces egg noodles 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) margarine or butter, melted 1 cup applesauce, no sugar added 4 large eggs 2 large egg whites 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 ½ teaspoons cinammon ½ cup raisins 4 medium green apples, peeled, quartered, and thinly sliced nonstick cooking spray Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray a 9x13 inch casserole with non-stick spray. Cook noodles several minutes less than package directions. Drain and return to saucepan. Add margerine (or butter) and applesauce, and toss to coat. In medium pan, whisk eggs and eggwhites, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon until blended. Stir in noodles, raisins, and apples. Mix well. Pour everything into casserole; spread evenly. Spray a sheet of foil with nonstick spray and place on top of noodles. (At this point, it may be refrigerated overnight.) Bake, covered, 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Increase temperature to 375 degrees. Remove foil, spray top of kugel with nonstick spray, and bake for 20 minutes more or until lightly golden. Let sit 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
