Sweet Potato Noodle Kugel

Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 38 minutes. Andrea's wine pick: Bring out the hint of apricot sweetness in this dish with a tender-fruited, peachy American pinot gris like Gallo of Sonoma Russian River Valley 2004 ($15). You can grate the sweet potatoes either by hand or in a food processor fitted with the grating disk.
