PASTITSIO. Thank you so much for joining in on our live chatting all things pastitsio! Here is my family’s delicious recipe: Mince: 5Tbsp olive oil. 1kg organic beef mince. 1 onion chopped. 3 garlic chopped. 1/2 cup white wine. 1 cinnamon stick. 1/2 tsp all spice. 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon. 3 bay leaves. 400g crushed tomato. 1/2 tsp dried oregano. Water. Salt and pepper to taste. Bechamel. 1/4 cup butter. 1/4 cup plain flour. 1 Tbsp corn flour. 6-7 cups full cream milk. 1 egg. Grated Kefalogaviera 🧀 as much as you’d like. Salt and pepper to taste. Macaronia - tubeular pasta. Grated kefalogaviera. Boil pasta, drain, add to a large 14” tray, add a splash of olive oil and a generous grating of cheese. Set aside and begin the meat sauce. Over medium heat combine the oil, onion and garlic and sauté until it’s sweats. Add the beef mince and break it apart over the heat stirring through continuously until it’s browned (approx 10 mins). Pour in the white wine and cook off the alcohol for 2-3 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, dried herbs and spices. Follow by adding 1.5 cups of water and combine everything well. Add your seasoning and allow the sauce to simmer over medium heat for approximately 30-40 minutes with the lid ajar stirring occasionally. Once ready spoon evenly over the pasta and set aside. Preheat your oven to 180c. To prepare the bechamel add the butter, flour and corn flour to a pot over medium heat. As the butter melts, cook off the flour for approx 2 minutes. Follow by adding a cup of milk at at time to the pot, adding each one once the previous has thickened. Whisk continuously until all the milk has been added and the bechamel has thickened. Grate in as much kefalogaviera as you like season to taste then quickly whisk the egg through. Pour the bechamel over the pasta and meat and finish with another sprinkle of cheese. Bake for approx 30 mins until golden on top. Once ready allow the pastitsio to sit for 20 minutes before cutting.
