Pastitsio is truly comfort food - a mix of macaroni and cheese and lasagna, but with a mediterranean flair. SO GOOD! The two year old was silent for 5 minutes while he savored two servings of Pastitsio tonight.
Warning - don't be scared of the length of the recipe. It is not complicated. Just creates a few dirty dishes to wash. The preperation time is similar to lasagna with an additional 10 - 12 minutes to create the Bachemel Sauce (egg yolk, butter, milk and flour cooked together - can we say YUM!). So this definitely would be a dish to plan to prepare when you have a little bit of time. Clean up though can happen while the dish is baking for 45 minutes. And it is such a filling dish, your sides can be minimal - we had salad and steamed carrots.
|Ummm, golden brown deliciousness!|
