My Aunt Marsha Bernhard passed away a few year ago.  She was an elegant woman who kept a beautiful home.  She made many magnificent holidays for our family there.  When I was a little girl, she would have me over for special times, just she and I.  When I was around 10 year old, before Passover, I had the pleasure of watching her make two of my favorite Passover foods – matzo farfel stuffing and mint meringues with chocolate chips.  I can still taste them both!  Here is the recipe for the stuffing.  Check out the April Jewish Journal for the meringue recipe!

Matzo Farfel Stuffing

2 onions, diced
1 c mushrooms, sliced
