Sorta kinda like mac and cheese but totally Pesadic.


1 large onion chopped

3/4 lb. cheddar cheese and/or other strongly flavored cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350. Saute onion until translucent and fragrant. Grease a 9X13 baking dish. Beat 3 eggs well. Place the farfel in a large bowl. Pour the beaten eggs over the farfel. In another bowl combine the remaining egg with the milk and pepper. Beat to combine and set aside.  Combine the onion with the shredded cheese(s). Layer casserole as follows: half the matzo, half the cheese/onions, remaining matzo, remaining cheese/onions. Dot top with butter. Pour milk mixture over top. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake 10-15 minutes more, to brown. Cut into squares or serve with large spoon.
