The Coolest Baked Pasta Dish
I recently made a Greek Pastitsio; which I thought was just the coolest thing. Not only does it taste good but if you layer the pasta correctly it makes an awesome presentation when served. Pastitsio is basically a layered casserole of pasta, lamb sauce and bechamel. So what makes this dish stand apart from other baked pastas? The combination of grated nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and cloves, added to the lamb sauce, is what did it for me. I'm submitting this to 2009's 1st Presto Pasta Night hosted by Ruth. Stop by and check out all the other cool pasta dishes.
