Moussaka is one of my favorite Greek dishes, it is made with eggplant. I saw these beautiful eggplants at the
Mountain Meadow Farm and Craft Shop calling my name. Of course Moussaka was the second word that popped into my mind. It a very rich tasting lasagna like food. It is time consuming to make, but well worth the effort.
salt with salt shaker
spaghetti sauce 1 jar 16 oz
1 package Italian sausage fried and drained of grease
1 lb ball mozzarella cheese
The first thing I have to explain is that the eggplant needs to by sliced at 1/4 inch slices, and salted. This will cause the eggplant to sweat. Place in large bowl with water, push eggplant slices to the bottom, this will release any bitterness the eggplant may have, you will notice the water will change to a dark color.
