#2 Macaroni are long thick strands of pasta with a large hole in the middle. The secret to the goodness of our offerings starts with the high-quality Greek Durum wheat semolina we use in our pasta. #2 Macaroni is a thick version of bucatini and the standard Greek pasta for Pastitso (“Pastitsio” or “Pastichio”), a traditional casserole often called “Greek Lasagna”. Each family has its own version of this hearty main dish. The core components include: a bottom layer of #2 Macaroni mixed with cheese and egg, a middle layer of tomato sauce and ground meat, and a top layer of thick béchamel and grated cheese. Cinnamon, nutmeg and/or allspice give this dish its signature Greek flavor. Pastitso is equally delicious with spinach, eggplant, portobello mushrooms – or any vegetables that inspire you!. Once you start working with our #2 Macaroni (Pastitso), you will find these noodles lend themselves beautifully to many sauces and are delicious with seafood, like calamari, clams and shrimp."
