Pastitsio is a traditional Greek lasagna dish prepared with fragrant ground beef sauce, pasta, bechamel sauce, and feta cheese. It is a layered pasta dish, just like Italian lasagna, or “pasticcio,” but in a different way, and also prepared with a different type of pasta and cheese. Its name derives from the Latin word “pasticium”, meaning something prepared with pasta.
Pastitsio is a delicious main dish you can prepare in advance and serve for any occasion. Usually, it is prepared with bucatini pasta, but you can use other types of pasta like penne or ziti.
