Stove-Top Moussaka

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

Moussaka is such a yummy dish but it can be a tad of a chore to put together sometimes. This is a quick version that can be made on the stovetop and be on the table in no time. I originally found this recipe in BBC Good Food Magazine.

Cut this recipe in half for just the 2 of us for supper this evening & it worked out great ~ Simple enough to put together, & great tasting, as well! I even left the mint in there (for my other half, no less) & must admit that I even enjoyed it, probably because of the combined taste of mint/feta! Not something I'd want to make often, but I'll certainly make it again, perhaps even for company, considering how much we liked it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
