About this recipe: A hearty pasta bake made with mince and tomatoes, macaroni pasta and a rich white sauce.
My Greek boyfriend raved about this to his mother. Except he said I used the wrong noodles - his mother uses penne pasta instead. - 20 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I found this recipe to be a bit bland. I will add some nutmeg next time. I will also increase the amount of bechamel as I like my pastitsio very creamy. - 25 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We made this for the neighbors and served with a salad. Thought it was going to end up dry but really was not as you would think. Maybe could up the bechamel a little if you wanted an obvious sauce but proabably would not be as authentic. Good to esemble ahead of time and bake later - 22 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
