    SME_Cook's Note:

    This is a fantastic Pastitsio recipe I created from the best of several recipes. It is lower in fat since it uses ground turkey. I often multiply the recipe by four and then freeze three of them...only freezing the bottom two layers. Then I make the sauce fresh before I bake.

      This recipe was fantastic! It took me a lot longer to prepare - the topping took me a really long time - but it was definitely worth the effort! Our only complaint was there weren't enough left overs!
