    angellore's Note:

    This pastitsio is guaranteed to remind me of holidays to Greece, it tastes so devine. Leftovers freeze well and should be defrosted before re-heating. I serve it with bread and a green salad. I use skimmed milk for the sauce, but any kind can be used.

      To prepare the topping, melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring. Blend in the milk and bring to the boil, still stirring. As soon as it thickens remove from the heat. Be careful not to burn it. Stir in 100g of the cheese, the yoghurt and the beaten egg.

      Combine the macaroni and minced beef mixture and put into an ovenproof dish. Pour over the topping and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden. Stand for 5-10 minutes before serving to allow the topping to firm up.

      Awesome recipe angellore. This Pastitsio was delicious. Perfect flavor and texture. It was so good, we couldn't stop eating it, I wouldn't have believed it, but the dish was even better the next day. Thank you so much for sharing this treasure. It was quick and easy to make, the spicing was spot on, all the flavors blended together beautifully creating a wonderful meal. Takes comfort food to the next level. Made for Pac 2011.
