Steps

Moussaka

  1. Using a fork, prick potatoes all over. Microwave on high (100%) 4-5 minutes, or until just tender. Cool; peel, then slice.
  2. Preheat an oven grill to high. Place eggplant slices on a large, foil-lined baking tray; spray eggplant with oil. Grill 4 minutes; turn. Spray with oil; grill a further 4 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Preheat oven to hot, 200°C (180°C fan forced). Spray a 2.5-litre (10-cup) ovenproof dish with oil.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add onion; cook, stirring, 5 minutes, or until soft.
  5. Stir in capsicum, oregano, allspice, tomato paste, tomato and stock. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes, or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat; stir in spinach.
  6. Arrange half the eggplant over base of prepared dish. Spoon over half the tomato sauce. Sprinkle with half the feta. Top with potato. Repeat layers.
  7. Combine ricotta and egg in a medium bowl. Spread ricotta mixture evenly over eggplant; sprinkle with parmesan. Bake 30 minutes, or until golden. Stand 10 minutes. Serve with salad.
