“I got this recipe from my sister Sheila, who found it in a local newspaper over 45 years ago. It has been our traditional Passover meal even before our children were born, and everyone expects it now when they come to the Seder. It is delicious and simple. We double and even quadruple it, depending on how many people are expected.”
