Holy wow yum! So this isn’t your typical dish that many people have heard of. I mean, before I was introduced to it, the name “Moussaka” wasn’t something I’d ever heard before. This beautiful Mediterranean dish is delicious straight out of the oven, and just as good reheated the next day.
Since both ricotta and parmesan cheese are the main components of the topping, this dish is firmly planted in the primal category. I haven’t made this dish many times, this probably being the third, however it is a super easy and relatively quick dish to prepare. This recipe comes from a scan of a cook book (sorry – no name or author!) that my friend’s Father emailed me after I first tried it at their house. So obviously it has been passed through the generations! 😉 hehe. I have however altered the quantities and some of the ingredients to suit!
This borderline sweet dish made up of a beautiful tomato based meat sauce, layered with eggplants and topped with a cheese mix is perfect for those upcoming winter nights!
