Top Review by Tea Girl

I like the idea of an easier and quicker moussaka. Because of the reviews, I tried the meat/eggplant mix and white sauce to make sure it was spiced enough and decided to add more oregano and some cinnamon (about 1/8 a teaspoon) to the meat/eggplant and some nutmeg to the white sauce (about 1/8 a teaspoon). I think that made it taste more like the baked version that I am used to. Make sure you do cut your eggplant small enough, I was a bit in a hurry and some of the pieces didn't really get fully tender. Thanks for sharing!
