    Servings: 12

    ½ cup red wine

    4 cloves garlic, minced

    ¼ cup onion, diced

    3 pounds ground pork

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    6 tablespoons dried mint, divided

    1 tablespoon black pepper

    2 cups halloumi cheese, grated and divided

    16 ounces ziti pasta, cooked al dente

    ½ stick butter

    ½ cup flour

    2 cups milk

    ½ teaspoon paprika


    # Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

    # In a wok or large skillet, pour the red wine. Add garlic and onion, and sauté until tender.

    # Add the pork, and cook thoroughly.

    # Add the cinnamon, 2 tablespoons mint, pepper, and parsley, and mix together.

    # In a small saucepan, melt butter.

    # Add flour a little at a time, mixing constantly, until it forms a paste.

    # Add milk a little at a time, whisking constantly, until fully combined.

    # Add paprika, and stir until thickened.

    # In a large casserole dish, lay down half the ziti. Sprinkle on 1 cup of halloumi and 2 tablespoons mint. Top with entire pork mixture, then the remaining halloumi, mint, and pasta.

    # Top entire mixture with the sauce, and cover with foil. To prevent foil sticking to the sauce, place a toothpick in each corner of the dish to prop the foil up.

    # Bake 45 minutes, then broil for 5-10 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes.

    # Enjoy!
