Recipe by Charlotte J
I've been saving this since 1997 from McCall's magazine. There are 9 Passover recipes in it. The menu they gave is Gefilte Fish (no recipe), Chicken Soup With Matzo Balls, Mixed Green Salad (no recipe), Stuffed Tarragon Roast Capon With Rich Pan Gravy, Matzo Walnut and Mushroom Stuffing, Roasted Tzimmes, Asparagus With Lemon and Mint, Chocolate-Almond Torte With Strawberry Sauce, and Assorted Macaroons. One of these days I may get this made but for safe keeping I'm saving it here.

- 1⁄4 cup unsalted margarine

Directions See How It's Made
- In large, nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, toast walnuts, shaking often, until lightly golden and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Transfer to large bowl.
- Add 1 tablespoon of the margarine to skillet; when melted, add half of the matzo. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until matzo is lightly toasted; add to walnuts. Repeat with 1 tablespoon of the margarine and remaining matzo pieces.
- Wipe out skillet; add remaining margarine. Heat; add onions, carrots and celery; cook 5 minutes, until crisp-tender. Add garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; cook 1 minute. Add mushrooms; cook 4 minutes, until tender. Stir into matzo mixture. Let cool; stir in parsley and eggs. Stuff into Roast Capon recipe #.
