This simple yet wow-worthy recipe is sure to please your guests and get rave reviews. Grilled beef patties, kofte, are layered on lightly toasted pita bread and covered in tomato sauce, a garlicky yogurt sauce, chili oil and an array of optional garnishes.
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.
