pasticio with veg

Submitted by: NICKYCRANE

Introduction

I added a lot more veggies to regular pasticio recipe. This is an experiment. I love pasticio, so tried chucking more vegs in with it. Was rather shocked to see the calories for the 8 servings I originally estimated it would do!
Meg, maybe you can make a much lighter version of this!

Tips

I can't advise re temperature and cooking time as I cook on my woodburning stove and have to adjust myself to its moods!
I haven't given instructions for seasoning - you'll have your favorites anyway. Sauce wants some nutmeg or cinnamon.
