How to make a Pastitisio - an authentic Greek specialty

Pastitsio (Greek: παστίτσιο), is a Greek baked pasta dish equivalent to the Italian lasagna. To make a pastitstio  one layer of meat sauce is topped with a layer of penne rigate or other pasta in a thick bechamel sauce and cheese. The Greek even put eggs in the topping for it to set further.
Here is an instructional video showing how to make an authentic Greek pastitsio brought to you by Diane Kochilas on Greek Food TV. Kochilas is an internationally known food writer, cookbook author, culinary teacher, food consultant and food "guru"
