    Noo's Note:

    Pastitsio is a traditional Greek dish,usually made with beef. This lighter version is ideal for those who are watching their weight/cholestrol level. I sometimes skip the cinnamon and add in a little chilli powder/chilli flakes for a spicier variation.

      Great recipe for anyone watching their diet - and good for those that aren't. I opted for the cinnamon as this gave the a nice little kick - that you don't know or realize where it comes from. The only change was adding a bit of fresh mozzarella, and a bit of parmesan cheese to the top in last 5 minutes. (2 small handfuls worth). I used chicken stock instead of wine, and it was a perfect compliment to the dish. Thanks for posting!
