  • Summary

    I'm a moussaka lover and I'm not ashamed to admit it! Unfortunately though I don't make it too often as I find it a bit time-consuming, especially for a mid-week meal. Enter this moussaka-style pasta! It's got all the flavours of a traditional Greek moussaka but it's a fraction of the hassle to make. Hope you give it a go!

    Ingredients

    • a large drizzle of olive oil
    • 1 large onion, chopped finely
    • 1 large aubergine (eggplant), diced (about 1cm²)
    • 250 grams/8 ounces lamb or beef mince
    • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
    • about 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 400 gram/14 ounce can chopped tomatoes
    • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
    • small bunch of parsley, washed and chopped
    • 300 grams/10 ounces dried penne (or other pasta of your choice)
