I am going to preface this with it is my first time ever making or eating eggplant or moussaka so I was not sure exactly what to expect. We all liked the meat and the topping and its not that we didn't like the eggplant is was just sort of indiscernable. I am going to take the leftovers and chop up the eggplant and serve it today for dinner as spaghetti sauce and I think the kids will love it. I didn't use mushrooms as we don't like them and had to sub thyme for the rosemary because we were out of rosemary. We did enjoy trying something that we don't usually make. I made it for PAC Spring 2010.
