I made this recipe into a pilaf instead of a kugel. I sauteed the onions and mushrooms and some garlic on the stove top, add the softened matzo farfel, added about 1/4 cup of water with chicken soup seasoning, salt and pepper, once the pilaf cooked a bit I added freshly chopped basil and parsley and one beaten egg to the mixture to make some pieces stick together but not to make the whole mixture too dense like a baked kugel. It was really good!
