Pastitsio.



I don't even know how many people we had for dinner last night; after counting to about 15 I lost the will to live!

So, what's a chap to do. Simple, make a delicious Greek Pastitsio.

Known in our house as Marconi Pie (Macaroni Pie), it's an ideal dish for when a whole hungry Rugby team turns-up.

Depending on what pasta is used, and in what country it's made, Pastitsio is alternatively known as Lasagna, or cannelloni; the basics are pasta, rich beef/tomato sauce, and a cheesy white sauce. The combinations are endless.

One thing I can always guarantee is that there will never be any left over for my breakfast. Yesterday I made two HUGE dishes.... nothing left!

Tonight we eat Roast Turkey; we always have a second Christmas in Feb'.

  1. That is the very best dish to feed a crowd!! It fills everyone up and everyone loves it too. My grandkids always come back for seconds.
    You need big pots for all that macaroni. Hope you don't have to do the dishes too.
    What's on the menu tonight?

    1. Tonight it's Christmas. I shall roast a Turkey, etc; I've even managed to find some Sprouts!

    2. Yes, of course you mentioned the turkey. With a few kilos of roast potatoes no doubt. Lucky to find sprouts. We can't even find frozen ones now

    3. The Sprouts I bought are like mini Cabbages. Much bigger than I've ever grown them myself!

    1. My father used to eat his Weetabix buttered with Marmalade. We have a box in the house at the moment, and I've just returned from shopping with some Marmalade. I shall be copying my father.

  3. Lasagna here and very nice does my partner make it with the richest sauce. Leftover the next day is even better.

  6. Delicious and perfect for crowds ..... I’m not sure but I must have missed something ..... have you got lots of family over ?
    We always had Weetabix with lashings of butter as children ..... people turn their noses up when I tell them but it is the most delicious way of eating it. XXXX

  7. Fifteen people are a lot to feed, but I have a feeling that despite what you said, you loved having having them all there. It is tiring but worth it. Savor the moments.

    1. We had a great time, and I do actually enjoy all the preparation work.

  8. Sounds like any pasta thing to me, a lasagna. Years ago before pasta in GB, in the 1970s, it was chilli con carne with brown rice for big groups.

    1. Anything that has rice needs to be prepared at the last moment. The advantage with this is it's all made in advance, and comes direct from oven to table; meaning that you can socialise.

      Delete
    2. Yes, I see the advantages. It took me back to big groups of people eating together.

  9. I think Lasagna has wide noodles but I like what you made much better.

  12. Did you hear there's a 12 word sentence you can speak to your man... that will induce intense feelings of love and instinctual appeal for you buried within his heart?

    That's because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, worship and guard you with all his heart...

    =====> 12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Love Response

    This impulse is so built-in to a man's mind that it will make him work better than ever before to love and admire you.

    Matter-of-fact, triggering this powerful impulse is so important to achieving the best ever relationship with your man that as soon as you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You will instantly find him expose his heart and mind to you in a way he never experienced before and he'll distinguish you as the one and only woman in the world who has ever truly tempted him.
