Kugel (noodle pudding)

This is not something I made for dinner but it was a recipe that I have never made before.
My friend Heidi lost her mother this week. Marilyn was a fun person to be around. When heard of her passing I asked Heidi what can I do? First she said there was nothing to do but then she mentioned Kugel. Have you noticed that when people pass away friends show up with casserole dishes.

I remembered that my cousin had a friend who always showed up at gatherings with Kugel and that everyone raved about. I called my sister and she had a copy of the recipe.

1 lb. noodles (medium width)
1 stick of butter
1 lb. cottage cheese
1/2 pint sour cream
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white raisins (if desired)
4 eggs, beaten
cinnamon (sprinkled on top)

Cook noodles according to package directions. Mix stick of butter into hot, drained noodles until butter melts. Add other ingredients in order given, mixing well. Turn into buttered rectangular Pyrex or Corning ware dish (about 13 x 5 x 2). Sprinkle cinnamon liberally on top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

It looked right. But how does it taste? Heidi gave it rave reviews!
