Traditionally Delicious and Different Pastitsio

When you think potluck, do you think of spaghetti, cupcakes, and potato salad? A traditional Greek Pastitsio featuring meat and cream would make a delightfully amazing dish to serve at the next family function or potluck. Even though everyone appreciates the cakes, salads and spaghetti, this meal is something that many will enjoy while discovering a different flavored food that they like a lot. This Greek dish will not only give the guests something to talk about, it will probably result in some requesting the recipe and a repeat performance for the next event.

While the thought of making a Greek dish may seem like a challenge, Pastitsio is actually an easy and quick dish to make. The preparation itself takes about ten to twenty minutes, with another forty-five minutes to cook and serve. This easy preparation and cooking time creates a time slot for you to prepare and cook the meal easily while doing other things while it cooks, whether it is spending time with your family or catching up on a chapter of your favorite book. The ingredients are easy to find at your favorite store. This dish heats up quickly in the microwave for another meal.

This is an opportunity to share culture and learning with the family. Discuss the location of Greece and possible reasons why some of their recipes are similar to Italian dishes. You will be able to dispel the image that many people have about Greek food, where they envision lamb kabobs and stuffed grape leaves, which are very good although not filling. Pastitsio is a substantial dish and has delicious flavor. It goes well with green salads and vegetables. Chunky bread, such as French bread or a crusty Russian loaf, is a great accompaniment.
