Sometimes referred to as Greek lasagna, this pasta bake is perfectly stacked into distinctive layers that look beautifully uniform when cut into individual servings. Pastitsio In the best renditions of this Greek meat and macaroni casserole, the components—tubular pasta, ground meat and tomato sauce, and a plush blanket of bechamel—are impressively stratified. We started by treating ground beef with baking soda before cooking, which altered its chemistry and made it better able to hold on to moisture. Pastitsio can be called the Greek lasagna due to the similarities between the two dishes.

Instructions to make Pastitsio (Greek Pasta Bake):
  1. Preheat oven to 375° and grease/spray a 13x9 baking dish.
  2. In a large skillet - brown ground beef and onion. Drain. Add garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add in tomato sauce, wine, can of undrained diced tomatoes and seasonings. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste - adjust seasoning if desired.
  4. While meat is simmering - cook pasta. Do not overcook - pasta should be just shy of al dente.
  5. Drain pasta. Return pasta to pot and mix in olive oil, 2 beaten eggs and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese.
  6. Now start the bechamel/white sauce. In a large saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add in flour and whisk until it's a smooth paste. Cook for a minute or two but do not brown.
  7. Slowly add in milk and cook for a few minutes, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens.
  8. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt, pepper & a bit of nutmeg. Mix in 2 beaten eggs & remaining 1 cup of parmesan cheese. This will be a very thick sauce - if it's too thick to work with you can add a bit more milk.
  9. Assembly time : ) Spread half of the pasta mixture evenly on the bottom of the casserole dish - make sure bottom is completely covered.
  10. Evenly spread the entire meat mixture over bottom pasta layer.
  11. Top meat with remaining pasta.
  12. Pour the bechamel/sauce on top of noodles. With a spoon spread sauce making sure to get edges and corners. Sauce should be nearly to top of casserole dish - you may have a little leftover.
  13. Bake for 45 minutes - top will be golden brown. Let rest for 20 minutes before cutting. Enjoy : )
