Greek Macaroni And Meat
(Pastitsio)
What You Need:
THE BASE
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ½ cup finely-chopped onion
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • ¾ pound ground meat
  • 4 cups cooked macaroni
  • ½ cup grated Romano cheese

    THE SAUCE
  • 2½ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • ½ cup grated Romano cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • Paprika

  • How To Cook:
    1. Put the butter, red wine, cinnamon, tomato paste, onion, salt, and pepper in a covered casserole. Cook 5 minutes in the microwave oven, stirring once or twice. Add the ground meat. Break up.

    2. Cook, covered, 8 minutes, stirring twice to redistribute the heat and to break up the meat. Add the macaroni and Romano cheese. Put into a 2-quart rectangular (12 inch x 8 inch) casserole.

    3. For the sauce, melt the butter in a 4-cup measure or small casserole. Work in the flour and then a small amount of milk. Continue mixing in the milk and then add the salt.

    4. Cook, stirring occasionally, until hot. Mix a small amount of the milk mixture into the egg yolks. Then gradually beat into the remaining milk mixture.

    5. Stir in ¼ cup of the Romano cheese. Pour sauce over the macaroni mixture. Sprinkle on the remaining ¼ cup Romano cheese and the paprika.

    6. Bake, covered lightly, 8 minutes or until done. Cool slightly and cut into squares to serve.
