1.5 lb pastry
1.5 lb. macaroni
1 lb. minced meat(mixture of beef and pork)
4 oz. chicken livers
6 oz. crushed tomatoes
1 chopped onion
2 oz. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbs tomato paste
1/4 pt. chicken or vegetable stock
2 hard boiled eggs(chopped)
1 aubergine, sliced very finely and fried or grilled.
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
Fry the onion and garlic.
Add the meat and liver, fry until cooked.
Add the tomatoes and the tomato paste. Cook for a few seconds.
Slowly add the stock and simmer till the meat is tender.
(or you can make a bolognaise of your choice)
Boil the macaroni (al dente!) drain and cool.
Add the sauce, aubergine, cheese and hard boiled eggs and stir well.
Roll the pastry , not too thick, and put into a greased dish with enough over the edges to cover the top
Pour the mixture and cover with the pastry.
Brush the top with beaten egg
Cook in a moderate to hot oven.
You could also just put the pastry on top, to minimize the carbs (ha ha ha) but the real recipe calls for the pasta to be completely wrapped in the pastry.
