Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Prepare the spaghetti: Boil in a saucepan 1 1/2 liters of water and add 1 tsp. sweet salt. Put the spaghetti in the pot and cook for 6-7 minutes. Drain them and mix them with the olive oil, until they are well spread and do not stick together. Beat the egg whites, add them to the spaghetti and mix well.

Step 4

Prepare the béchamel: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and add the flour. Stir constantly with a whisk, until the flour gets a little color and take it off the heat. Keep 2-3 teaspoons. soup from lukewarm milk, to mix it with the yolks and add the rest to the pot, stirring constantly with a whisk, so that it does not clot.

Step 5

Put the pot back on low heat and let it simmer, stirring constantly until it thickens. Turn off the heat and let the cream cool a bit. Mix the egg yolks with 2-3 tablespoons. soup milk that you had kept and once the cream has cooled a bit, add them. Season with salt and pepper and mix well to combine the yolks in the cream. Finally add the grated cheese and mix well.

Step 6

Prepare the pasticcio: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Butter a medium oven pan and sprinkle with toast. Place half of the spaghetti in the pan, sprinkle with 5-6 tablespoons. soup grated cheese and spread all the minced meat sauce on top. Sprinkle with a little cheese again and spread the rest of the spaghetti evenly on top.

Step 7

Spread the béchamel over the spaghetti and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake the pasticcio for 40-45 minutes, until the béchamel gets a golden color.
