Instructions Checklist

  • Stir tomato paste, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into lamb mixture; cook until spices are fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water, lasagna noodles, and balsamic vinegar to lamb mixture; bring to a boil. Cover skillet, lower heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove cover and simmer until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite and sauce is thickened, 5 to 7 more minutes.

  • Stir Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon mint, and salt together in a bowl. Spoon yogurt mixture, about 2 tablespoons per addition, across top of lasagna mixture. Sprinkle feta cheese over top and garnish with chopped mint leaves.

I absolutely love pastitsio but I hate how long it takes to make it. This is a fabulous and much lower fat substitute. The Greek yogurt gives it just the right creaminess. I followed the recipe except for only using half of the balsamic vinegar. I used gluten free lasagna noodles so I had to cook it a little bit longer. Also I like mine extra thick so I added cornstarch at the very end. Definitely a keeper. Read More

The flavors where ok. Would have been better as either a traditional lasagna or using other noodles like a rotini pasta. Made per recipe it was slop like. Read More

Absolutely outstanding! The mix of Greek spices with traditional lasagna is absolutely amazing. Served it with garlic bread...or could use more traditional Greek bread. Going directly into our cookbook of tried and true recipes! Read More

I was actually looking for a stovetop lasagna recipe to use up some ricotta cheese and decided to give this a try. I used ricotta instead of yogurt and feta and it was delicious! Read More
