Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling water until tender but not oversoft. Pour into a colander and drain well. Transfer to a large bowl.

Put raisins, dates, prunes, apple, and pineapple into a small bowl. Stir in lemon juice.

In a third bowl, combine and blend ricotta cheese (stir it up first), sour cream, honey, salt, spices, sugar, and concentrate. Stir in melted shortening. Put eggs into a cup and beat with a fork; combine with mixture. Pour over noodles and fold in. Then fold in fruits.

Grease an 8- or 9- by 12-inch Pyrex casserole with shortening. Fill with kugel, distributing fruit evenly. Cover tightly with a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until surface looks set (about 10 minutes). Remove from oven and place on a trivet to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into serving pieces. Serve warm or at room temperature.

May be served as a side dish or a dessert.
