I've often made Moussaka from a recipe in a Greek cookbook. It is a labor extensive dish. Although this Moussaka does not compare to my own (or that at Molyvos) , it is good none the less. I would prefer more eggplant and a bit more sauce. Will try it again.
My husband, the eggplant hater, loved this. Sadly it was shaken around a bit in transit so the sauce was lost but what was there was wonderful!
Funny, 2 weeks after eating this G&T Moussaka, I happened to eat Moussaka in NYC at Molyvos (my fav. greek watering hole in the city) and sorry: Molyvos wins. Their taste is more subtle, vs. the G&T version's Eggplants were too overpowering for my taste. But that's perhaps just me. Otherwise quite ok dish.
I don’t know what recipe you were following for the Moussaka, but it wasn’t GREEK. You forgot the cinnamon, nutmeg, oregano, and garlic!
Love everything about this dish, but the lentils. I like lentils, but sometimes they're hard. Very flavorful and easy dish to prepare.
