Pastitsio Cannelloni

Creamy, cheesy, family favorite Pastitsio Cannelloni a.k.a. Greek Lasagna

I have always ordered cannelloni from restaurants. I had the idea that there is a lot of work involved with filling the pasta tubes, especially making Pastitsio Cannelloni (which is sometimes called Greek Lasagna) but it is so easy !

I fill the cannelloni tubes in the oven dish, using a teaspoon and it takes only minutes to fill all of them. A drop of the meat mixture here and there, but everything gets covered in the sooo creamy, delicious cheese sauce, it does not matter.

Fill the tube, and simply drop it next to the previous filled pasta tube.

And I will never order from a restaurant again. Since I made this and found it is so easy and much tastier, I will continue to make it myself.

Homemade is after all always better, fresher and you know exactly what is in your food.

Hubby fell in love with this dish the very fist time I made it ! He was still eating, when he wanted to know when I’ll make it again. He is not a fussy eater, but to get him so overjoyed with a meal, is a huge accomplishment.

This Pastitsio Cannelloni is now a regular dinner on our monthly menu and what I love about this particular pasta, is that I always have the ingredients on hand.

It is also the perfect all season pasta – add vegetables on the side during chilly weather or add a salad or two during Summer. We prefer salads, whether it is Winter or Summer as we are huge salad lovers.

If for any reason you do not have, or use Swiss Cheese, use White Cheddar instead, the dish is still delicious.

  1. Brian would love this! I always thought it would be hard to fill those tubes …. I had to Google "Emmental Cheese" …. It's Swiss cheese for any Americans who want to know! Pinned this – This may be our Christmas Eve dinner this year (I always make lasagna …. but may change my mind to this!)

  2. Hi Linda,
    This looks so good. One of my favorite dishes was Pastitsio. I am going to need to save this for when I get home.
    Have a great day.

  3. Yum this looks delicious. My recipe has improved from frozen spinach and ricotto, to trying a beef and pork mix similar to yours. So tasty and delicious. I also find the fresh pasta instead of the instant pasta is tastier too. Definately no more ordering pasta out for me either 🙂 Hope your having a fab night x
