This is an excellent and spicy Greek pasta dish. You will find everyone wants seconds! Serve with Greek salad for the full experience.
Have been using this recipe for years and decided it was time I thank David for publishing and sharing. David, I'm a professional chef/caterer, and there's no better authentic pastitsio than this recipe, right down to the red wine vinegar. It's perfect the way it is written. For those of you who change it until it's unrecognizable, and then review it, shame on you. Prepare it the way it's written, and if you want to change it drastically ---- publish your own recipe, don't review this one. - 13 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delicious! My husband loved this recipe. I used extra lean hamburger and skim milk in the white sauce and it didn't taste like I'd used anything low calorie. Very good!!! - 14 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My husband and I loved this! I have made many pastitsio recipes before, but this one is my favorite. I loved the taste of the fresh tomatoes in it. At first I was leary about even trying this recipe. First because I thought it was going to be a hassle to peel and seed the tomatoes, but that was easy. Secondly because of the chili powder. I just thought how greek does that sound? But I made it exactly per the recipe and am so glad I did. seriously, this is good. Thank you! - 26 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
