Delicious recipe. Thumbs up from the whole family including teenagers. I used penne pasta and chicken broth instead of wine. This recipe makes a lot of food. Four adults ate less than half.

I just discovered noodle kugels and wavered on this recipe or Ina's. This was a delicious hit! What a fabulous, creamy, and subtly sweet dessert. I stuck to tradition and used 8 ounces of egg noodles. The apricots were particularly good. Best served warm. ""

Delicious pasta dish! It's very similar to restaurant style "Thai Chicken Pasta". My whole family loved it. Roasting the chicken took 45 minutes at 400 degrees. I omitted the sherry because the sauce is not cooked and therefore the alcohol would not cook off. My local grocery did not have sherry vinegar, so I substituted red wine vinegar. The fla...
