If you don’t celebrate Passover and have no need to make lasagne out of matzoh, I am so sorry this post likely doesn’t appeal to you. Although I must mention that our not-Jewish friend Matt had my matzoh lasagne last year and keeps talking about it nonstop. In fact, just the other day he invited himself over the next time I make it. Why is it that the non Jews look more fondly upon Passover foods than Jews? When we were growing up, my mother and grandmother used to buy 5 pounds of matzoh when it came into the stores because they absolutely loved it with some Breakstone’s whipped butter in the morning. I’ll admit, I liked it quite a bit, too. Now that I am married to someone who actually celebrates Passover, the sight of matzoh makes me cringe a little. Is it because when you’re “forced” to eat something, it takes on a different feeling? Probably.
