Your favorite dish for pesach (new or old)

From all the pesach chat we've got going on, it's clear that most of us Chowhounds are deep into meal planning. This means attempting new recipes and working on some golden oldies. I admit I'm also fishing for interesting new recipes since I don't have any family pesach recipes.

This year, I'll be trying out a yom tov lunch with customizable (potato-starch) crepes. I've done omelettes before but these seem a little more flexible and elegant. It also means not having to come up with a seperate dessert.

      It would be great if some of the posters would link to recipes.

    2. Chicken soup with kneidlach.

      You said "Favorite," not "great new idea to give to the Chowhounds."

        Yes I did and I meant it. I like finding out what people enjoy and I think it's a fun way to get excited about pesach. Also, you never know when a dish is new to someone else.

      2. I have a few -

        1) Matzah Brei and if I am feeling decadent made with schmaltz

        2) we have a family tradition of making what my grandmother called gedemke (sp?) meat - basically a pot roast seasoned liberally with cinnamon

        3) for the Seder - Egg Soup - hard boiled eggs chopped up in salt water served cold -

        4) Meringue chocolate chip cookies

        5) Bubble - basically a pancake made with matzah meal, eggs and sugar.

          Gedempte fleisch is Ashkenazic pot roast.

        2. Potato Chremslach! This and Matzah defines pesach for me.

          1. Last year it made a zucchini dish that got rave reviews. It was so easy, definitely planning it for this year. Basically long strands of zucchini, tossed with lemon, olive oil, fresh pepper, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts

              I'm actually going to make this dish this year. Similar, with almonds instead of pine nuts.

                That's looks delicious. Adding almonds to my list!

                  I'm sick of serving asparagus! This so simple. I tried it out the other night and it was delicious. The toasted almonds tasted so good.

                  The only thing that I will change is that I had finely grated zucchini in my refrigerator (leftover from zucchini muffins) and it got too mushy. I will use a different blade on my food processor so the pieces are not so thin.

                    No Passover food processor, so I'll just use a sharp knife to cut the zucchini.

                    Also planning on making beets with parsley, scallions and apple cider vinegar. It's one of my favorites
