Recipe Ingredients for Pasticcio

1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
1 large onion, finely chopped
500 g lamb (minced)
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
400 g canned tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
300 g dried macaroni
150 ml yogurt (Greek)
1 medium egg, beaten
50 g Cheddar cheese
50 g feta

Recipe Directions for Pasticcio

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, until soft. Increase the heat, add the minced lamb and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, until browned. Drain off the fat in a sieve, then return the meat to the pan.

  2. Add the purée and cinnamon and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, then half-fill the can with water and pour into the pan. Add the oregano, season, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan160C/gas 4. For the topping, mix the yogurt, egg and half the cheeses. Season with pepper.

  4. Cook macaroni in boiling water until al dente. Drain and spoon half into a deep, ovenproof dish. Season. Top with the mince and remaining macaroni. Press down, spoon over yogurt topping and scatter with remaining cheese. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.
