My family loves it!
Yesterday I cooked pasta with meat sauce
and from the leftovers I decided to cook pastitsio.
The only think I had to prepare was the bechamel!
pasta ( pennes)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
Bechamel (for a medium pyrex)
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
500 ml milk
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
Whisk in the milk, taking care to break up any roux lamps.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the egg, carefuly keeping whisk.
Then add the pepper, the nutmeg, and the parmesan cheese.
Whisk for a minute and set this aside.
Preheat the oven to 375 f.
Mix a scoop of bechamel into the meat sauce.
Get a pyrex and coat the bottom with half of the pasta.
Pour on all the meat sauce and sprinkle with grated parmesan
Pour the bechamel on top off all this and bake for 45 - 60 minutes.
Remove from the oven and wait for 25 minutes before you cut into it!
You can served with Greek or green salad.
