Noodle Kugel at Jimmy and Drew's 28th St. Delicatessen in Boulder, CO. Also called Lokshen Kugel (Yiddish for Noodle Pudding), it involves baking boiled egg noodles in a sweet, eggy casserole, often flavored with raisins and cinnamon. Some families will serve it during the High Holy Days as a side dish (and make it savory), while others reserve it for dessert. Jimmy and Drew's is wonderfully dense and destructively sweet...like a cinnamon bun baked into pasta.
