Matzah LasagnaThis  has been a staple at our family Seders ever since I can remember.  This is my mother’s creation and it is something our entire family looks forward to.  Forgetting to serve this on Passover is just as bad as forgetting to serve pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving (yes I was guilty of that once).


  • 6 large onions, chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery chopped
  • 1 box matzahs
  • 3 lbs chopped meat
  • 1 1/2 jars mushroom sauce ( I use 1 32 oz can of tomato puree instead and I reserve a bit for the top)
  • 6 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups red wine
  • salt, garlic, oregano and parsley to taste
  • 1/2 cup oil


Saute the onions, carrots and celery in oil until tender.
Add meat and cook until no longer pink.
Drain any excess oil.
Add 1 cup of wine and cook until it has absorbed.
