A classic greek Pastitsio is pasta baked with a sauce of ground lamb, various spices (cinnamon, allspice, oregano, etc.), tomatoes and a thick layer of cheesy bechamel baked on top. Not traditional, but I can't see why you couldn't saute some sliced mushrooms in with the onions/garlic, etc. when you make the sauce.
