BO II: The Matzah Of The First Seder

Two people asked me the following question. It is such an obvious question that I am sure that the seforim talk about it. I personally don’t have an answer and I haven’t had a chance to look around. So if anyone has a teretz, feel free to comment.
The Torah says that the reason we eat matzah on Pesach is because the B’nei Yisroel didn’t have a chance to le the dough rise before they left Mitzrayim. However, we find that they were commanded to eat matzah with the korbon pesach even before they left Mitzrayim. What was the reason why they were commanded to eat the original matzah?
