MOUSSAKA

Slow-cooked lamb ragù with tomato and mint, layered with potatoes, roasted aubergines and our creamy béchamel sauce.

How to Cook

    This recipe is made with some raw ingredients and isn’t suitable for microwaving, so please follow these instructions carefully.

  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. (Be careful not to grill by mistake!)
  2. Remove the film but leave the Moussaka in its wooden tray*. Place on a baking tray in the centre of the oven and cook for 35 minutes.
  3. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before serving. Make sure it’s piping hot throughout.
  4. *Our wooden trays are designed for the oven. Just make sure they aren’t placed close to any element or flame.

Something
to drink?

Like our lasagne, this is a dish that demands to be eaten with a glass of red wine in hand. A medium-bodied merlot or chianti would be ideal.
