Greek Duck Legs in Spicy Tomato Sauce (Pastitsada)



A recipe for duck legs in spicy tomato sauce. Served on top of spaghetti, it’s the famous Pastitsada from Corfu.

Pastitsada is usually served with thick and hollow spaghetti-type pasta so that the sauce enters into the hole and gives you an awesome palate experience. I used bucatini, which is just hollow spaghetti and it was great. Don...
