Chocolate Chip Kugel

Serves 12 hungry boyfriends in 1 hour and 45 minutes

1 lb wide egg noodles
5 extra large eggs
4 cups half and half (1 quart)
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate ships
3 cups frosted flakes

1.  Preheat oven to 350.  Butter a 9 by 12 baking dish.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and a splash of olive oil.  Cook the noodles for 6-8 minutes until tender.  Strain.

2.  In a large bowl whisk together eggs until yolks are broken.  Mix in half and half, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and ricotta.  Whisk until smooth.  Fold in chocolate chips with a wooden spoon and mix in drained pasta.

3.  Pour the noodle mixture into the baking dish.  Gently crush frosted flakes with your hands and sprinkle over the entire kugel.  Place it into a larger pan and pour in enough hot water to come up half way.  Cover the entire assembly with aluminum foil.  Bake for 45 minutes, then remove the foil and bake another 45 minutes.

4.  Serve your boyfriend.  Cut the kugel into 12 individual squares.  Take out a piece, place it on a dessert plate, and dessert is ready!
