Best Pastitsio Recipe with Veal and Basil

If you are looking for a Mediterranean meal to serve for your next company potluck, a Greek Pastitsio recipe that includes finely chopped meat, spaghetti, and cream is the perfect meal to make. Because this recipe uses canned spaghetti sauce, the preparation time is cut significantly. Instead of a white sauce, the choice is red and with the great variety on the market, it is easy to pick one with herbs, cheese, or meat added for extra flavor. This is a crowd-pleasing meal because it is warm and hearty. The taste is different from other recipes family and guests may have tried, which makes it extra-special.

A tasty dish that all will enjoy, this Mediterranean recipe is delicious served with a fresh green Caesar salad or your favorite type of Greek salad. Perhaps you want to add more vegetables to the meal and freshly steamed vegetables are a great choice, such as steamed bell peppers, corn, or cauliflower. A lovely cut-glass bowl with black and green olives adds a special touch to the table.

Festive meals deserve festive plates, so bring out the splashes of color. Firecracker red, turquoise blue or jet plates add finesse to this delicious meal. If it has been awhile since you have created a centerpiece for the table, this is the perfect time to do so. Dressing up your dinner table with an attractive centerpiece not only adds pizzazz to the setting, it adds a great method of showing off the meal. Bake or buy a large round bread loaf and set it in the center of the table on a pedestal, with grapes and peppers around the base. Celebrate the meal. Continue reading
