I'm sure this has a Greek name but I don't remember it. It is similar to Pastitsio however. My dad was Greek and Mom learned to make a lot of Greek food from his sisters. This was one of his favorites. You can add favorite things like mushrooms, onions, even herbs like basil or oregano. You can use different cheese if you don't like or don't have feta. I have made it with parmesean with good results too. This recipe is meant to be personalized by the user. We like it as it is with lots of garlic.
