Moussaka, Turkey/Vegetarian (M/P, TNT)
Source: Weight Watcher's Oldies, but Goodies cookbook
Serves: 2 to 4

3 cups eggplant, peeled and cubed
2 tsp. salt (optional)
5 ounces ground turkey or veggie crumbles
2 cups stewed or fresh tomatoes
1 cup onions, chopped
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. paprika
Several turns grated pepper
1 tbsp. oregano
2 slices reduced-calorie bread, made into crumbs OR substitute about 1/3 cup oatmeal and 1/2 cup nuts ground coarsely
3/4 ounce cheese, grated (with veggie crumbles)

Sprinkle eggplant with salt and allow to stand 30 minutes or more. Rinse and pat dry.

Spray a large skillet with a non-stick cooking spray. Sauté tomatoes, onions, and spices for 5 minutes, then add veggie crumbles.

Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Put eggplant on the bottom. Cover with tomato mixture. Sprinkle top with crumbs and cheese. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 minutes. Serve.

Poster's Notes:
Even with my husband who loves to eat, this recipe makes 4 servings, not the two the original says. I did make one change: instead of ground turkey, I used veggie crumbles. I'm not sure how that would affect the WW counts.
