    Perfect. I added a layer of zucchini and carrot near the bottom and a layer of eggplant near the top as well.

    Fantastic! the only change I made was I sauteed an onion and garlic in with the ground beef and I added in some Parmesan cheese also, this will be a repeater! thanks Kel!...Kitten:)

    This was delicious, and the instructions were SO easy to follow. I made this exactly to the recipe except for adding a cup of grated Cheddar to the Parmesan. Loved the cinnamon and cumin in the sauce. A superb blend of flavours. We all enjoyed this, and I'll certainly make it again. It also reheats well(covered loosely with in a moderate oven). Thank you, KelBel, for sharing this recipe.

    This was a good recipe and worth making again. The spices were slightly strong for our tastes and next time I will probably cut back some on the cummin and nutmeg.
