"This is another version of a favorite Greek recipe. This one comes with a bechamel sauce (which sounds French, but actually the Greeks had it first!). It also uses lasagne noodles, which makes it reminiscent to an Italian lasagne, but it is decidedly Greek. This recipe comes from Jeff Smith. I hope you enjoy!"

"I can't even talk. I am speechless. Seriously, did you have to put this recipe on here? I didn't even have to cook today, because Den was off in another city, I had the whole day FREE! But no....I had to see this beauty that Leslie posted, and darn it to butterflies in the Spring...it called my name. I followed this exactly, except I made it vegetarian, just not putting in the meat, and still it produced a light, lovely tasting, most delicious bit of heaven on a fork. If I go to the "beyond", I am taking this dish with me, no doubt about it. Made for ZWT6 Zee Zesties!"
"drooly drooly droooooolllllll! the 4 of us ate it all. :o really delicious! i was worried that i used too much cinnamon but the baking tamed it & all was fabulous! made for ZWT6 Zanies!! i am so full i'm falling asleep on my keyboard...sweet dreams!"
"We loved this dish! wa few amount adjustments and I used fresh lasagna noodles this turned out very well and my family enjoyed this for Friday night dinner with a Greek salad on the side, thank you for sharing this great recipe Kathy, this was made for KK's forum Greek tag game event"
"I used rigatoni noodles and it worked out just fine. Layered in a casserole dish, this was reminiscent of a baked spaghetti dish I make. Two DS's ate this right up. Served w/garlic flavored crescent rolls, this made for a lovely week-night meal.
"I used spiral noodles instead of lasagna noodles and followed instructions as listed. What a lovely recipe!!! This is the first time I have ever had pastitso, I am eating like the Greek do from now on................. Thanks for sharing!!"
"This was really good. Everything looked like what my group would enjoy, but I wasn't sure how it would really turn out. This was very well liked by everyone. Very delicious."
"WOW!! I can't even begin to tell you how much we all loved this dish! It was my first time making Pastitso, and I was a little nervous about whether or not my family would enjoy it. Turns out it was just amazing! I was surprised at how fats and easy it was to put together, much easier than a lasagna! I used spinach lasagne noodles and made the recipe exactly as written. I was not sure how much cinnamon to put in the sauce, but gave it a liberal dose, perhaps 1.5 tsp. and it was GREAT! Thanks so much for a terrific meal, I'm going to serve this when catering tomorrow! Made for ZWT 6 :)"
