Pasticcio!




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
