Skinnyfabulous Moussaka Casserole

Skinnyfabulous Moussaka Casserole

Moussaka is a delicious, hearty, Greek dish, usually prepared with sliced potatoes, eggplant, seasoned ground beef and lamb and a creamy topping of whipped potatoes with béchamel sauce. I’ve visited Greece several times and found that each cook has their own variation. My skinny version includes seasoned lean beef, potatoes, onions and eggplant. Instead of topping it with a fattening béchamel sauce, I’m using a store bought Light Alfredo sauce and topping with fat-free feta cheese. The skinny for each serving, 218 calories, 6 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. This dish is so dreamy!
