Thanks! Share it with your friends!


When I think about a dinner-party, this Greek comfort pasta bake is always part of the menu. In Greek households, pastitsio is a must-have when having guests over. The layers of pasta, meat sauce, cheese, and creamy bechamel sauce go together so well. The kids usually flock to the side of the table that this tray is sitting on and in the blink of an eye, it’s all gone.

I make mine using penne because the proper pasta is impossible to find. I also put a layer of pasta on top of the meat sauce before covering with the cream sauce. Maybe not traditional but that's the way my yiayia used to make it.
