Traditional foods are divine (they’re favorites for a reason), but there’s nothing wrong with mixing things up a bit. This Greek-inspired pastitsio doesn’t stray too far from the norm, but it’s fun to shake things up once in a while.
Have you ever heard of pastitsio? Think Greek flavors meet Italian lasagna. It’s a baked dish that includes tube-style pasta instead of long, wide lasagna noodles. Mixed in you’ll find meat (usually lamb), tomatoes, seasonings and a thick and creamy béchamel sauce for the topping. Sounds great, right? It is!
I took a tiny detour from tradition and created Greek skillet pastitsio on the stovetop instead of baking it. It’s so easy to make and so delicious. Pastitsio usually includes ground lamb, but I used ground beef instead. And rather than a thick topping of béchamel, I made the creamy sauce and mixed it in with the other ingredients. I think you'll love this dish any night of the week.
