      This was very good, though I had a bit of trouble figuring things out. For example, I wasn't exactly sure how "lightly" dried farfel should look, or what "just juicy" at the end would be. I have a feeling that if I ate this at miraklegirl's house,it might have looked & tasted quite different! However, it was still very tasty. The asparagus was just right, tender/crisp, & the crushed matzoh had a nice rich flavor from the chicken broth.
