Sometimes I change up the recipe and top this casserole with crumbled feta cheese. I like serving it with a simple Greek salad, pita bread, and a great red wine. Can also be made w/ ground lamb. Added 3/4 tsp allspice to recipe

Recipe Ingredients for Moussaka

3 pounds potato, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
2 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 pound ground beef
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk

  3. Recoat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, garlic, and lamb to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lamb begins to brown. Add bell peppers, tomato sauce, salt, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, and parsley; cook 10 minutes.
