Yet Another Musakka
Simply put, a "musakka" is a layered vegetable which includes eggplant. Every couple of weeks I make a new version. One of the reasons I like it is because it's a "bake and serve." You make it in a baking pan which can be put on the table. Every housewares store, and many supermarkets, have a large selection of such pans. You can also make it in disposable aluminum pans or the "cardboard" ones that are microwave proof.
The musakka pictured above is a simple recipe, which I made up spontaneously, layering eggplant and chopped turkey with onions and tomato paste. You can flavor it with garlic and other spices. There's no "right and wrong."
Be creative and enjoy!
