After eating this for dinner, it is almost like I've taken a stroll in the greek countryside! Delish! This is a little involved, but it is sooooo worth every minute! I impressed my SIL, who came for dinner and watched all the preparations. (She's 26 - someone needs to teach her ;-) ) My DS (9) even enjoyed this, which was surprising to me - he is used to the tour now, and knows some great flavors come his way every summer! I tucked away the 2 extra servings in the freezer, for only ME! Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Jostlori!
I have loved Pastitsio ever since I made the one Jeff Smith had in one of his cookbooks. This one is really good and I would recommend it to anyone who has never had it before. The only change I made was to add a little cinnamon to the meat and the sauce. Making the sauce might seem daunting but it is really easy to do. OPA!!! (ZWT 9)
