When I served this scrumptious kugel dish for a buffet brunch, everyone kept going back for more! Made from noodles, spinach, fresh dill, ricotta cheese, butter, and sour cream (all light versions of course), who could resist!


1 package (12 ounces/375 g) medium noodles
1 package (10 ounces/300 g) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/4 cup fresh dill
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups (500 g) light ricotta cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream
4 eggs
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups milk (skim or 1% is fine)


Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse well. Return noodles to saucepan.

Food Processor Directions:

Spray a 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish with nonstick spray. Add noodle mixture and spread evenly.
