Noodle Kugel, Pineapple II (D, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 8 or more

16 ounces dried noodles
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup melted butter
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 20-oz. cans crushed pineapple, drained
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
pineapple rings
maraschino cherries, optional
freshly grated nutmeg

Cook noodles as directed until al dente. Drain and rinse with cool water.

Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese, sour cream, melted butter, sugar and salt. Blend thoroughly. Fold in noodles and drained pineapple.

In the bottom of a casserole dish (I used a 12" square Corningware dish), mix melted butter and brown sugar. Spread evenly and top with pineapple rings or chunks and cherries if using. Top with noodle mixture and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.

Poster's Notes:
Here is my favorite sweet kugel which is my own variation of a recipe I found years ago. The measurements are guesstimates since I don't measure much of anything--you could add more sugar if you like things sweeter. I have used brown sugar in the noodle mixture which is what I prefer.
