Pastitsio

This delightfully seasoned lamb casserole is Greek in origin and a welcome change from the more usual beef varieties and special enough for company.

Yield: Serves 8.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • I box (1 pound) ziti
  • 1 pound feta cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups milk

Instructions

Brown the ground lamb in the oil and add garlic, onions, and seasonings. Boil ziti to firm al dente stage. Line a deep baking dish with ziti and cover it with a layer of meat and a layer of crumbled feta. Repeat layers 3 times, leaving at least 2 inches of space in the pan. Beat together eggs, Parmesan cheese, and milk, and pour over entire contents of casserole. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes, setting the casserole in 1 inch of water in a large pan.
