Only another 2 days until Passover starts and this year I promised a bunch of dishes in advance for my Jewish friends. Somehow....flu turning into pneumonia translates into little energy. So this post will be short but delicious.
I actually wrote about this Passover Spinach Lasagna last year, but it's definitely worth repeating. Instead of pasta sheets, think layers of matzoh. I found the recipe doing a Google Search...Houston Chronicle. Check out this year's article - no pasta but some great dishes...roasted chicken with candied lemon sounds lovely and the artichoke dish reminds me of this one I recently made - just substitute matzoh meal for bread crumbs. Apparently this dish is from Joan Nathan's book The Food of Israel Today....obviously now on my must have list. She's one of my fave Jewish cookbook authors.
The dish I really wanted to make (and perhaps still will) comes from another of my favorite Jewish Cookbooks - Cucina Ebraica is called Scacchi - a meat & matzoh pie and if you have the book, the recipe is on Page 150. Ground beef, pine nuts, onions, raisins, cinnamon....even feeling sickly, this filling sounds most appealing.
I've received lots of great pastas for tomorrow's roundup and I apologize for not acknowledging your emails as they came in. I will be posting the roundup tomorrow, just perhaps later than usual. There's still time to send in more delicious dishes if you haven't done so yet. Click here to find out how.
