This is a 'dairy' main meal for Passover that re-heats well. Even the pickiest eaters love this recipe. Vegetables like mushrooms, zucchini, and peppers may be added; steam them al dente first and add to layers. Italian cheese blend can be used in place of mozzarella if desired.

  • Beat ricotta cheese and eggs together in a bowl.

  • Briefly pass each matzah sheet under warm running water; layer moistened sheets on a plate.

  • Spread a thin layer of marinara sauce in the bottom of a deep 11x15-inch baking dish; top with a layer of moistened matzah sheets, breaking pieces as needed to completely cover marinara. Spread a layer of ricotta mixture over matzah mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over ricotta mixture layer. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients, ending with a layer of matzah, marinara, and mozzarella cheese, respectively.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbling and browned, about 45 minutes.

I made this recipe for second night of seder as an alternative to Salmon which I also served. It was so easy to make. I stir fried some mixed peppers and added to the layers. I only used 2 jars of marinara sauce which was enough. Next time I may add spinach to the ricotta which I think would also be very nice. My guests absolutely loved it you would never have known it was made with matzo. Read More
