Traditional Moussaka with Zucchini

Greek moussaka — the layered casserole of eggplant, potato, meat sauce and cheesy béchamel — is about as delicious as Mediterranean comfort food gets. This recipe mixes in zucchini for a denser vegetable base layer. The scent of cinnamon, oregano, ginger and red wine in the tomato-based sauce will spark appetites and memories. Moussaka is traditionally served in large pieces, undoubtedly to reward the cravings that the aromas arouse. Greek moussaka casserole on white plate next to clear glass dish on blue napkin |
