Reviewed Pastitsio

Aug 1, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

We had this Pastitsio at a friend's house last week and when he told me it was Ina Garten's, I was not surprised. So flavorful, moist and multi-layered flavors. I've had Pastitsio in fine Greek restaurants but never as good as this one.

The shells were an interesting diversion from what I've had before - Macaronia - which is...

I make them small - two bites size and they're great - not too sweet, crunchy and full of flavor. They're easy to make and go quickly. One of my favorite cookies ever."

Hi All, Duff's mom here -

This cherished jello recipe has been requisite in our Thanksgiving AND Passover repertoire since I was a kid! Duff and his big brother, Willie love it. It goes great with any fowl - even duck, which I make a lot.

I let it sit on the stove to thoroughly cool after cooking and plenty more moisture evaporates. The pineapple somehow (I'm sure Alton would know why) gives the filling more clarity than the apples...

As much as I dislike breakfast, I've been told I must eat something within a half-hour of waking in order to get my metabolism going. I don't have time nor the inclination to eat in the morning but since I started making my yogurt parfaits, I'm loving it.

Trader Joes has some really delicious granolas and so each day I have a...

I just wanted to add that yes, the filling will be similar to applesauce but don't rush the cooking. I let it sit on the stove to thoroughly cool after cooking and plenty more moisture evaporates. Then, OVERNIGHT in the fridge firms it right up.

As far as the phyllo goes, it just...

Classic and I agree - the better the ingredients are mandatory! Use fresh cheese for this - not the rubbery (pizza) kind. Serve with a crusty artisan bread or grilled garlic toast. You don't need much else.

Although I love balsamic vinaigrette as a salad dressing, I don't think you need it for this perfectly balanced salad....
