Pastitsio is a popular baked pasta dish in Greece, usually created with mince meat and bechamel sauce. It was originally based on the Italian ‘pasticcio’, but has evolved into a Greek dish in its own right. It is a sort of Greek lasagne, using tubes of pasta instead of sheets.

This meatless version is a great alternative to the traditional mince, as it provides all the hearty pleasure of pastitsio but with the dietary benefits and flavour of six different vegetables! Although this dish takes a little longer to make and is a little more involved, don’t let that put you off. Any pasta lover falls in love with this pastitsio immediately.

Tips

Pastichio pasta is not very common outside of Greece. You could substitue them with Rigatoni or Penne.

Before starting to make the béchamel sauce, mix the corn flour with a cup of milk and whisk them before you add them to the heat. This will prevent the corn flour from crumbiling.
