Sicilian Baked Pastas

There are many Sicilian baked pastas. Pasticci, which actually translates to meat pie and is just one of them.

It is not a specific dish, "it is a genre of dishes cooked with the method of baking macaroni with tomato sauce and sausage or meat or eggplant etcetra in oven."

Have a nice 17th.

Pastitsio, sometimes spelled Pastichio, pasticcio di pasta, lasagne al forno.

A timballo perhaps ... I bake pastas with varying ingreidents all the time ... for example the rigatoni gorgonzola timballo in pastas section ...

I have an Italian dicitionary specialising in gastro culinary vocab and there are several names which could apply -- it depends on ingredients and added to the genre word.

Interesting post. Margi. thanx.

Ground beef and bechamel white sauce, baked with macaroni in oven instead of lasagne sheets and it is also made in Greece too.

It is a Sicilian dish called patitsio.

Margi.

Pasticciata

Good morning,

I believe the dish you are looking for is Pasticciata, which has many various versions throughout Italia, and originated from the Greeks ...

Have a nice Sunday.

Margi.

Like Margi and the other friends said, In Italy we have many recipes which are called "pasticcio di pasta" or "pasta pasticciata", which generally combine some pasta with other ingredients, basically to use some leftovers. They are usually baked recipes.
And about the tube pasta, here is a kind of pasta used for baked pasta recipes (they are called ziti or candele) which I just digged from my pantry:

Another good reason to love the ancient Greeks!
