    Chocolatl's Note:

    An interesting change from the usual lamb or beef and eggplant moussaka. Adapted from Cuisine Magazine, February 1982. I recommend reducing the amount of salt; the cheese will make it salty enough. This may be assembled several hours in advance, covered and refrigerated. Bring to room temperature 15 minutes before ready to bake. Cook time does not include resting time.
