Greek restaurants all over the world prepare Pasticcio (also known as Pastitsio). Not surprisingly, families and taverns all over Greece also make it.
Most families follow a recipe passed on to them by a dear family member and then adjusted over time to satisfy personal taste.Those unfamiliar with Pastitsio may wonder what is this romantic-sounding dish.
The easiest way to describe it would be as a Greek version of lasagna. This is not entirely fair as a comparison.In Greece, cooks customarily prepare Pastiysio with a special long and hollow pasta especially designed for this traditional Greek dish. Outside Greece, this special Pastitsio pasta is hard to find.
