    Bergy's Note:

    There are many Moussaka recipes but I have found none as good as this recipe. Originally it was from "The complete Garlic Lovers Cookbook from Gilroy, the Garlic Capital of the World" I made a few minor changes and this recipe is the result. I've never had anyone turn down seconds and have served it at least a dozen times.

      i've had this in my cookbook forever, and just now got around to making it. i made this with eggplant instead of zucchini. it was great. a little bit of work, but well worth the effort. we love eggplant, but never had it prepared this way. the flavors blended wonderfully. i will definatley make this one again. i took leftovers to my mom's house, she swooned over it too, so consider this one, two, 5-star reviews. a keeper for sure, bergy.

      Wow! this was so so good, I used the zucchini as I had a good harvest from the garden, it takes a bit of time to put together but it's so worth it when you have it all in one dish and a nice salad on the side I loved it, and I even made the seasoning from scratch, which I had left over for next time. Very very nice dinner. I will be making this one again.

      Easy, inexpensive and full of flavor. Beau monde can be found in the spice section of any large grocery store. It is a blend.
