Are you thinking. "what in the world is Pasticcio?" It is Greek lasagna. Pasticcio consists of three separate layers that blend together to make a lovely flavor. On the bottom, you have ziti noodles. The middle layer is a mix of meat, vegetables and spices (including cinnamon, of all things) that give this dish a very interesting flavor. The top is a soft and creamy Bechamel Sauce. This sauce is prepared carefully, by adding flour, warm cream and cheese to melted butter in a sauce pan. The result is a thick, creamy and lovely layer to top off this interesting dish.
I have not been in much of a cooking mood lately. I'm in the third trimester of pregnancy and it has been tough. However, we had several friends over the other night and I made Pasticcio. I always get excited about cooking this Greek dish.
Here is the recipe I always use: http://www.firsthomelovelife.com/2014/01/pastichio-greek-style-lasagna.html
