Recipe of Pastitsada with Rooster

Chop the onions, put them in a pan on low heat and saute until they are caramelized.


In a saucepan put olive oil, let it burn well and place the pieces of rooster and sauté until it turns brown.


Remove the rooster and the oil on a plate, sprinkle the lettuce, laurel and garlic and stir for 2-3 minutes to flavor the oil. And finally quench with vinegar


Add to the pot, the rooster, the onions, the wine and fill about half a liter of water. Allow to boil for about 3 quarters to one hour.

* Traditionally, instead of water, they add broth made with calf bones.


Add the pelt, the tomato and let it continue to boil for about 30 minutes, evaporating the liquids and creating the traditional dark red sauce.


Boil the spaghetti. Once prepared and strained, remove the roast to a platter, and stir in the sauce.
