Pastitsio

Pardon me if I spelled it incorrectly.

Anyone have a fast, easy way to make this? Has to be delicious too. LOL

Isn't it similar to a lasagna with white sauce?

Make a nice bolognese sauce (ground beef, onions, tomato); boil up the pastitsio noodles; either layer them or slop them all together; top with a nice cheesy bechamel sauce; bake until the top's browned.

There, is that easy enough? I promise it's delicious! (and, yes, it's pretty similar to lasagna ...)

I've never heard of this but it sounds good - so it has red and white sauce?

There is a special pastitsio noodle?????

That DOES sound easy. :-) .. tomato sauce? diced tomatoes? crushed tomatoes? fried green tomatoes? just kidding about the green ones. :-) I'm thinking that it's tomato sauce, but before I even ask anymore, I better look up bolognese sauce. LoL

Thanks Ayrton :-)

I found this recipe:
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground veal or lamb
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 - 6 cloves of garlic....depending on your love for garlic and how much your family can stand
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 16 oz. can whole tomatoes with/ juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
Is it close?

Yes, although one I tasted had mostly white sauce (or bechamel).

Right on the money! Just a nice "regular spaghetti sauce" bascially, which is dead easy to make -- sautee the onions and garlic; add the ground meat and saute, dump in the tomatoes (puree, paste, whole -- whatever turns you on, really) and the other ingredients you list above as well (plus a bit of sugar, methinks).

Yep, there's a special noodle! I'd better go and find a photo on Google for you. Be back!

Why do I fear that this hick town doesn't have any? RoFL

Here you go! This is the finished product, of course, but you can see the pasta's a tubular thing -- looks like long drinking straws, basically. (The pictures on the pasta package always kill me -- they'd have you believe that you're supposed to sit and line the noodles up perfectly, when, of course, you just slop them in unless you're seriously anal retentive ...).

Don't know which hick town you live in, but never mind ... it doesn't really matter if you can't get those. Use penne or even elbow macaroni (which every hick town has ) and it will taste just as good!

I haven't looked for the long tubular ones. But I sure am going to look. Do they have a special name?
