    Mac and cheese goes international with this Greek inspired dish. To make it even more authentic, you could substitute ground lamb for the beef.

      What a nice change of pace! The recipe was very easy to follow, and the dish easy to prepare (though it did make alot of dishes! ;) )I loved the flavors that the cinnamon and nutmeg gave the dish. I did add stock instead of water, as well as 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, as well as upped the garlic to 3 cloves and added about a teaspoon of oregano. My family and I really enjoyed this, and I will be making it again for sure! Thanks for a great recipe!

      Yooper, I haven't made pastitso for years, thanks for the memory jolt. This was good, and I followed the recipe to the letter. I felt when I ate it though, that something was missing, so dug up my old recipe. It also had wine, tomato paste and stock, and I think that would deepen the flavour of the meat layer, other wise it was exactly the same. I would suggest that you would get 8 average servings out of the dish I cooked tonight, so watch that if your diners are average eaters.

      Made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit with my DH. It is inexpensive to make using ingredients you always have on hand. I will have to agree that it did dirty a lot of dishes, but that won't stop me from making it again. We thought it had very good flavor and consistency. The only thing I was unsure about was the sauce. Is it a sauce or a crust? I baked it for 45-50 minutes as the recipe stated. The top was bubbly and heated through, but not like a crust. When I put a knife in it, the knife did not come out clean. Not sure what is correct. Nevertheless, we will make it again.
