pastitsio

παστίτσιο

A classic magirefta dish, derived from the Italian pasticcio. Made with layers of pasta (generally bucatini or ziti) bound with feta, eggs and thyme, interspersed with a meaty tomato sauce made with onions, cinnamon and parsley, then usuallytopped with béchamel sauce and baked. Light it's not!
