We loved this! I had to use a can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce but it was fantastic. Everyone gobbled it up. Definitely a keeper. The sauce on top is what really makes it stand out. And, do use the cinnamon.
This dish reminded me of true comfort food at it's best!! We love it!!
Very good. My husband is Greek and he thought that this was a great pastitsio recipe. If you want authentic Greek pastitsio, you have to put in the cinnamon. It may sound strange but it's delicious.
I used ground chicken as my meat. I did the rest of the recipe as written and added the cinnamon. I added the macaroni to the meat mixture, then I put have the meat & mac mixture to dish, sprinkled 1/2 cup parmesan cheese over mixture, than added other half. Poured the b?chamel over and baked. It was delicious. My husband said it was a keeper.
Followed the recipe exactly. Did not add the cinnamon as it was optional.I used ground lamb when I realized it was a Greek dish. My husband said he couldn't taste the onions ( I used a large onion because thats all I had) so it should have been enough, also we couldn't taste the garlic or Oregano. My sauce was too thick but didn't know how thick it should have been. Maybe if the sauce was thinner allowing it to spread down into the dish before baking it would have tasted better, but who knows. It was edible but not memorable.
Good stuff! This is a yummy comfort food!
The whole family loved it! That is worth a 5 star review at our house!
I liked this meal, it was very satisfying.
My husband loved this dish, so i am giving it 5 stars!
Excellent recipe. I love this dish anyway and was looking for an easy recipe. This one fits the bill. Definitely a favorite. The only thing I did differently was used Kasseri, a Greek cheese, in place of the Parmesan because I had some on-hand.
