    Sephardi Kitchen's Note:

    This traditional Sephardic Passover main course uses leaven-free matzo in place of regular lasagna noodles, and has a delicious meat and spinach/mushroom filling.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 -10 matzos
    • 1 cup chicken broth or 1 cup stock, warm
    • 3 eggs, beaten with a little broth

    MEAT FILLING

    VEGETABLE FILLING

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare the meat filling. In a medium pan, cook the meat with the onions and a little olive oil until browned, drain off fat. Add the raisins, parsley, allspice and cinnamon, cook for another couple of minutes. Set the meat mixture aside.
    2. 2
      Now for the vegetable filling! In a little olive oil, cook the onions until translucent, then add the pine nuts and sliced mushrooms, cook for a couple minutes longer. Stir in the spinach (with a bit of water if the spinach isn't frozen) and nutmeg. Cook until the spinach is wilted, set aside.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and soak the matzah in the warm broth until slightly softened and flexible.
    4. 4
      Grease a 9x13" glass pan, and place two soaked matzo in the bottom of the dish, with the edges overlapping slightly.
    5. 5
      Spread a layer of the meat mixture atop the matzo, followed by more matzo. Add a layer of the vegetables. Continue until the filling runs out, then top the pan with a final soaked matzo layer.
    6. 6
      Drizzle the beaten egg/chicken broth along the top of the dish.
    7. 7
      Bake until golden brown on top, about 30-45 minutes. If the top layer of matzo curls up or gets too crispy, you may want to pour a little additional broth over it.

      We're not Jewish and Passover was two weeks ago, but this caught my eye. It sounded good, and it was. For us, it was a completely new take on lasagna -- a delicious combination of unexpected spices and ingredients. Made for PAC 2010.
