🧿 This massive tray of Turkish/Greek/Mediterranean beef mince pasta bake with lashings of grated helim (halloumi) with dried mint is called fırın makarınası which roughly translated means oven spaghetti 😂 and fed a family of six twice and we also fed another family with it too! (Don’t worry, we observed social distancing by leaving it in the porch and they picked it up from there!) I remember watching my Nene make this at a very small table in a very small kitchen in Cyprus over 45 years ago, funny what memories food invokes? You would usually make this with thicker spaghetti but I only had thin spaghetti so I just used that and it worked just the same., topped with a creamy bechamel sauce and more cheese on top to get those crusty edges, who could ask for anything more 😋
