If you can't eat rice on Passover this is a great substitution. We use this side dish to go with everything, meatballs, chicken, etc. It is so good and enjoyed by young and old alike. Do not think of using the boxed matzo farfel that is sold in stores; I made the mistake of doing that once and it was horrible. Most of the time we don't even bother with all the vegetables unless we're using it for a stuffing.
