A few weeks ago, I let you all in on my little secret of how I had ridiculously high cholesterol and part of that was attributed to eating butter on a regular basis. When I finally decided to make the change and rid myself of butter, as well as other cholesterol-ridden culprits, I needed to find a substitute that would fulfill my cravings for butter and still allow me to stay healthy. I have indeed found that with “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!” I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter has 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than other brands of butter on the market. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter soft spreads contain no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, which means there is no trans-fats found! They are also made with a blend of oils rich in Omega-3 ALA.
Now, the real test with using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter is to see how well I can use it with my everyday cooking. I am a HUGE fan of cooking and I never want to alter my recipes to comprise taste. With that being said, it was a necessity for me to stop using butter in my recipes. So, I started using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in almost all of my recipes and the results have been incredible! Everything from appetizers..to entrees..to deserts have had the same great taste with using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, but now I no longer have to worry about being unhealthy! I love that it is the perfect substitute for all my cooking and baking.
I decided one night to make my delicious noodle pudding (kugel) that I have made time and time again in the past. This time, I decided to use only I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, without using any other of the butter ingredients the original recipe called for. When I was perusing, the It is Good To Know website, I found a similar recipe, to the noodle pudding that has been passed down from one generation to the next in my family.
If you are not familiar with noodle pudding (kugel) it is a side dish made of just what the name says-noodles- with a very sweet taste. I absolutely love it!

3 Tbsp. I can’t believe it’s not Butter melted

2. Cook egg noodles according to direction on box. Drain pasta and set aside to cool.
3. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1 container sour cream, 1 container cottage cheese, eggs, and 3 TBLS melted I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in a bowl.
4. Add egg noodles to mixture in #3 and spoon mixture evenly over mixture in #3
6. Bake 45 minutes, cool for 10 minutes, and serve.
