|Three Cheese Noodle Pudding|
An updated and jazzier version of this timeless classic. Made with Greek yogurt, of course!
I haven’t had this in YEARS. Since I left NYC and the last time was when a friend’s mom made it. Many moons ago. And this came with many fond memories of that friend’s mother–Sylvia Friedman–one of the BEST Jewish cooks I ever knew. Needless to say she was the quintessential “Jewish Mother” too–not just to her own kids, but she’d adopt others, like me!!!
This wasn’t the way she made it. Hers was more of a classic. Contained no fancy schmantzy cheeses, just sour cream and cottage cheese. I omitted the cottage cheese and used Greek yogurt. I happen to LOVE cottage cheese, but many more DON’T so best to leave it out. Basically, it’s her recipe except for the addition of the fancy schmantzy cheeses and the yogurt.
I used Chobani® plain in this.

We have 2 or 3 versions of Kugel we make at our house, but none like this one. I'll be adding it to our list.

There's really a bazillion ways to make this!!! Next one will be the sweet one with the apples and the raisins and that will be my beloved Sylvia Friedman's recipe!!!

I have never heard of noodle pudding, and I had to find out what the heck it was! I can't say that the name sold me, but after reading the ingredients and seeing the photos, now I want to try it!
Judith Hanneman says
Hi Andi…yep a very humble name which doesn't do justice to how delicious they can be!!! This is a savory one, but you can also do them up sweet like a dessert–generally with apples, raisins, cinnamon sugar…YUM!!! It's a staple in NYC delis!

My Mom used to do this with rice instead of noodles! It just reminded me of that when I saw the ingredients! Yum! Great post! Pinning! =D
