Pastitsio | Oven-Baked Greek Macaroni

 

Just in time for Fall. Comfort food that surely brings out childhood memories; just like your Yaya (grandmother) used to make.

Pastítsio (pa-STEE-tsee-oh) is the Greek version of a Mediterranean lasagna-style pasta pie; composed of layers of tubular long macaroni, a meat-based sauce (makaronia me kimá) and finished off with an egg-based custard or Mornay sauce (a white sauce, Béchamel, with cheese).

Start by making your meat sauce to give it enough time to cool.  There’s no recipe here, pretty much anything goes, but you do need to let it simmer for at least an hour on the stove.

Copy-Cat Manti | Phyllo Dough Roses with Yoghurt + Chili Oil

 

Manti is a type of dumpling made with unleavened pastry dough and filled with minced lamb or beef.  It can be prepared a number of ways, which I will cover in future posts.  This recipe for phyllo dough roses, or rosettes, is meant to mimic the experience of savoring manti without all the hustle and bustle of making it.  But why roses one might ask?  Because rolls are not pretty enough!

According to some researchers, manti first reached Cilician Armenia as a result of the cultural interaction between Armenians and Mongols during their alliance in the 13th century.  However, some researchers do not discount the possibility that manti may have originated in the Mid East and spread eastward to Korea and China through the Silk Road (source).
