    Manami's Note:

    Pastelon is a Puerto Rican dish first recommended to me by one of my nurses, who is from Puerto Rico. Picture a lasagna, but instead of noodles for the separating layers, you use plantains. It's SO good! There are many variations, but this is how I prepare it. Plus, a lot of the common additions to Pastelon - like capers, olives or raisins, if you desire.This is Maldo's recipe and made it last night and thought I'd share ;) I used my Sofrito Cubano.
