    This is from the original Moosewood Cookbook. It's a bit of a production but it's so worth it. I make it for special occasions and potlucks.

      Just got the Moosewood cookbook from the library yesterday. When I ate meat, moussaka was one of my favorite dishes, so I was hopeful with this recipe. It is a lot of work, and takes a while to make, but that is to be expected with all moussaka recipes. In the end, we liked this recipe, but did not love it. My favorite moussaka recipe on is one by evelyn/athens, #59130. Maybe I would modify the Moosewood recipe next time to include kalamata olives in the tomato sauce and kasseri cheese, in addition to parmsan, for the topping.

      windhorse23, this dish was out of this world! we enjoyed the mousakka made with the mushrooms (I used more than 2 lbs of mushrooms!) We used tomato paste insted of the paste because of the resident! It wasn't runny at all and with the bechamel sauce it made it just right! Thanks for posting, Diane :)
