the cooking time for this recipe is too long- according to the package irections it should be cooked between 10-15 minutes. i think your recipe source was mistaken. this is usually a great side dish for a brisket

I suspect the poster meant 6-9 minutes for the Farfel....there is no way it takes 60 minutes to cook Farfel
