Zucchini Moussaka

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by windhorse23

I found this recipe in a cookbook I picked up at a thrift shop for ten cents. It's called "Food Writers Favorites-Quick & Easy Entrees." I made a few small changes and it came out great, plus it was a cinch to make. Next time I'll try it with ground turkey or chicken instead of the lamb, which was harder to find, more expensive, and definitely higher in fat.

My zucchini was pretty big (I only used three, but ended up with just over 3 lbs of sliced zucchini). Probably shouldn't use more than half that amount.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in large skillet. Add zucchini and onion. Sauté about 3-5 minutes, until the onion is softening. Remove from pan and put in 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In the same skillet brown the lamb, breaking up large chunks. Drain off grease.
  3. In small bowl combine tomato sauce, garlic, salt and cinnamon. Add to skillet, Mix well and simmer the mixture a few minutes (about 5.).
  4. Spread meat mixture over the zucchini. Sprinkle feta cheese and Parmesan evenly over top, covering meat completely. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
