    By The Lake's Note:

    Mousaka is one of my favorite Greek dishes and this is a great twist to the traditional recipe. Cinnamon and nutmeg are authentic to Greek Mousaka, please don’t omit it. My family loves this meal, it’s so easy and makes a lovely presentation! The smells are divine! Serve with a great bread and a simple garden salad. I don't know who to give credit for this recipe, it's been so long ago.
