PS: I also whisked an egg and some onion powder into the topping mix. This topping reminded me of a recipe I used to have for Macaroni Beef Royale, which had a sour cream, egg and sauteed onion topping.

I made this the other day and wondered why the ingredient list calls for 2 Tbls fresh oregano and 1/2 cup parsley, but directions only mention adding half these amounts. Also I only used !/4 tsp of cinnamon as 3/4 seemed like it would be too much. I bought a pretty decent sized eggplant and my slices were less than the 1/2 inch called for but I still didn't have enough to finish the top layer. I used a 4 liter Corningware casserole. I thought the finished dish was a little bland so served with marinara sauce.

I just made this for dinner. It was pretty good, but here are a couple tips if you plan on making it: use less tomato paste, a small onion, and be sure to salt it well. It's lacking some taste but is a simple and fast alternative to traditional moussaka.
