“I based this recipe on the onion noodle kugel posted by Chia. I altered it to meet my husband's sensibilities and now I am curious as to how those changes affected the nutritional info. If you are serving the kugels as a main dish, then I'd serve two to each person, otherwise, one per person is probably about right if you are serving them as a side dish.”
12 individual kugels
