For some reason my family didn't like this much. NOTHING wrong with the recipe - just not for us. Thanks for posting.
I liked this moussaka very much. Even my significant other who was very skeptical about the recipe liked it. Thanks for sharing! :-)
We loved this different take on Moussaka. The blend of flavors was very nice and the wine added to the richness of the meat mixture and the sauce really topped it off! Great one!
