Easy Pastitsio (greek Lasagna)


This big, fat Greek pasta is as delicious as it is comforting. Packed with a meaty tomato sauce, penne pasta, warm spices and topped with an easier-than-you-think béchamel, it’s a take on lasagna we highly recommend.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
