Sweet and tasty, this kugel is served cold, so it's perfect for breaking the fast after Yom Kippur because it doesn't need to be reheated. Also great any other time of year!

Pour half the butter into a 12-C. mold or tube pan, and swirl around the bottom and up the sides. Press brown sugar into bottom, then press pecans into sugar. Cook the noodles in boiling water according to the directions on the package. Drain.

Mix the noodles with the eggs, remaining melted butter, cinnamon, granulated sugar and salt. Spoon the mixture into the prepared mold. Bake at 350 degrees 1 1/4 hours or until the top is brown. Let the mixture stand for 15 minutes before unmolding it. Top will become slightly hard, like a praline. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Yield: 12 servings
