Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat

Add the lamb mince and cook for 4-5 min, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go

2 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Peel and finely dice the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the Knorr beef stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 300ml [550ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

3 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Add the diced onion and chopped garlic to the pan and cook for 7-8 min further or until the onion has softened

Once softened, add the ground cinnamon and dried oregano and cook for 1 min further or until fragrant

When fragrant, add the tomato stock and cook for 4-5 min further or until thickened to a ragù-like consistency

4 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Meanwhile, add the tortiglioni to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the pasta for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain and rinse under cold water and set aside for later

Tip: This will get rid of the starch and will stop the pasta sticking together!

5 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Return the pot to a medium heat with 30g [60g] butter

Once melted, add 30g [60g] flour and stir with a wooden spoon for 1-2 min or until a grainy paste forms – this is your roux

Gradually whisk 350ml [700ml] milk into the roux, a little at a time and cook for 5 min or until a smooth, thick sauce remains – this is your béchamel sauce

6 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Add the cooked pasta to the lamb ragù and give everything a good mix up – this is your Greek lamb pasta

Add the Greek lamb pasta to an oven-proof dish and top with the béchamel sauce

Grate the cheddar cheese over the top and season with a generous grind of black pepper

Put the dish in the oven for 20-25 min or until golden brown – this is your lamb pastitsio bake

7 Greek Baked Lamb Pastitsio & Rocket Salad

Use this time to clear up, set the table, have a cup of tea or simply chill!

Combine the balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil in a bowl

Wash and drain the rocket, then add it to the bowl and stir it all together – this is your dressed salad

Once golden, remove the lamb pastitsio from the oven and allow to cool slightly
