Greek Pasta and Beef
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min.
We love Greek food, so I was delighted to try this. It certainly turned out to be a winner! After reading some of the reviews, I did increase the cinnamon and nutmeg, and used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce. It was flavorful, and the spices weren’t overpowering. I will definitely make this again. VFE
Neither my husband nor I like this dish. We both thought it was very bland. What flavor there was we both found to be a very weird combination (nutmeg, cinnamon) with pasta sauce and meat. I won't be making this dish again.
needed more tomato sauce
We did not like this recipe. I found the cinnamon and nutmeg to be a little aggressive.
I've been making this recipe for years. Everyone seems to love it. Since trying the original recipe I do one thing differently. I use a 15 oz can of tomato sauce and no water. I think that it gives it more flavor. Also sometimes I'll mix in some Romano cheese with the Parmesan
This dish sounded promising, but ended up being VERY bland. It was far too much work for too little flavor. Will not make again.
I made this as directed and both my husband and I liked it. My kids however, did not. But they are pretty picky.
We apologize for an error with the amount of butter in the sauce. It should be 1/4 cup (not 1 cup). It will be corrected here soon. With the change, the fat grams per serving will be reduced to 13 g.Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Excellent. My husband is 2nd generation Greek and this is his favorite dish. When my stepson comes to visit us, he always requests it!
This dish was excellent! I have made it several times and we all love it. The only thing I do different in this recipe is I leave out the nutmeg and cinnamon because my husband doesn't care for it in main dishes. I have added some Italian herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, etc) instead and have also just left out those 2 ingerdients. Both ways were great!
