PASTITSIO (GREEK LASAGNA)

Pastitsio is a favorite traditional Greek dinner recipe.  It’s a Greek version of lasagna- characterized by a white and creamy bechamel sauce used in place of marinara and a hint of cinnamon.  And I think you’ll find that this is one of the most delicious dinner recipes you’ve ever had!


It’s layered just like traditional Italian lasagna.  The layers are as follows:  noodles tossed in egg are topped with Greek cheese.
