Makaronia Tou Fourno As Made By Hannah Simone
Here's a video that shows you how to make it:
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.
