Traditionally moussaka is a layered dish held together with a rich béchamel sauce. This low-maintenance recipe has a similar taste but you can make it with half the work, half the time and fewer calories. Ground beef can be used in lieu of lamb.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb Yukon Gold potato cut in 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 eggplant diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 can chopped tomato drained
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Method

On parchment paper–lined baking sheet, toss together potatoes, half of the oil and pinch each of the salt and pepper. Bake in lower third of 400ºF (200ºC) oven, turning over halfway through, until golden, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large Dutch oven, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 4 minutes.

Add eggplant, oregano, cinnamon and remaining salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until tender, about 6 minutes.

Crumble lamb into pan; cook, breaking up with spoon, until browned. Stir in tomato paste. Add tomatoes and wine; simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Serve with roasted potatoes. Sprinkle with feta cheese.
