Post in partnership with Schwartz

One of my favourite Greek dishes is moussaka. It’s gutsy and filling with the great flavour combination of lamb and aubergines (or eggplants). This lamb moussaka recipe from Schwartz  is made with lamb mince flavoured delicately with red wine, marjoram, oregano and garlic before layering with sliced aubergines, topping with thick cheese sauce and baking in the oven. Serve it with a green salad. Or even a Greek one!
