17I think a relation is unlikely. Some ideas on pashtida:
Other theories are that pashtida derives from the German (pastete) and Italian (pestette), from the Italian pasticcio (the source of pastitsio) or pastetta (according to Stahl) / pasteta (according to Even Shoshan) or even from the Polish word pashtet (or pasztet).
(All the words in the second paragraph are also from the "paste" root.) More here.
vastedda looks like a diminutive. In standard Italian it would be a word ending in -vastella. Turiddu, the tenor role in Cavalleria Rusticana, would be Salvatorello in Rome or Tuscany.
