Matzo Ball Soup
Chef Frank had never had or made matzo ball soup. It is not a diner favorite like chicken noodle soup. It is a pretty hard dish to mess up and super easy to make. Matzo balls last for a few days in the refrigerator. I think that matzo ball taste better the next day. If you never made matzo ball soup, I highly recommend it. This is one soup you will never want to Passover.
