Once upon a time I was in the mood to spoil my man rotten (well, I do get those ideas sometimes), so I asked him the time-hallowed question:
What would you like me to cook for you? You can pick anything, anything at all.
And he said, fondly remembering some happy evening in a Greek tavern:
Panicking, I started browsing my books full of cooking lore and eventually marched off to the kitchen and produced... something.
That was some years and many pastitsios ago. Now I know that panic is not a necessary ingredient. Pastitsio is really easy to prepare. It's yummy (goes without saying), even if you go for the budget friendly version. Finished pastitsio looks quite impressive, especially if you serve it a day after preparing - those neat squares simply beg to be photographed, or at least ooohed and aaahed over. I'm truly glad I've discovered it. Time to share the recipe.
