  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water; bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Stir in the egg noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta until cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Combine the eggs, melted butter, sour cream, soup mix, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the cooked noodles, and drained spinach. Spoon into prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until hot and golden brown, about 60 minutes. Cover dish with aluminum foil if kugel begins to brown too quickly.

I reduced this recipe by half because it is just my boyfriend and I. There was a lot of spinach. Next time I'll use only one box of spinach instead of two. I also added 1lb. of chicken that I cut into bite size pieces and broiled before cooking all together. Otherwise extremely good.

I liked this, just didn't love it. I was not happy with the overwhelming flavor of the onion soup mix. Next time I will try with sauteed onions and maybe even mushrooms. Maybe some fresh garlic? And then add seasonings to taste. Also, the noodles on top were too hard and crunchy. I will cover next time.

Wow and double wow. I am Episcopalian married to a Jewish man. Each Passover, I try my best to make something great to impress his family. Last year I made a kugel many liked then this year, made this delight of a recipe! Like it said, even people who aren't into spinach loved it! My niece, Mindy, was point in case. Everyone complimented me! It was such a hit that I'm going to even serve it as a side on .... Easter Sunday!

This is delicious! I used fresh spinach-2 big bags and wilted it with olive oil and chopped garlic instead of frozen, but I followed the recipe on the rest. I served it at a CSA event and people LOVED it!

This was absolutely delicious. I did not have the onion soup mix so just sauted the spinach with onion in olive oil until the onion was transparent. I made 1/2 the recipe without spinach and it was still delicious. The next time I would put crackers and butter on the top. The noodles got hard when it was baked. Or maybe just cover it while baking. Can't wait to make this for family and friends.

Having become part of a Jewish family in the last few years I was looking for easy kugel recipes. This one has always been a hit and it's very easy to make!

Very tasty! I halved the recipe, used two boxes of spinach, and made the recipe parve by using Tofutti sour cream and margarine instead of regular sour cream and butter. I served it with tzimmes and really enjoyed the savory-sweet contrast between the dishes.
