As this says it’s not a traditional moussaka. Traditional Greek moussaka is made with eggplant and this recipe uses potato in it’s place. I think that using both eggplant and potato would work really well too, but making a traditional mince and tomato base sauce would probably be a lot better than a can of braised steak and onions.
This is another of my minestrone soup recipes. It differs from the other one in just a few small ways. It has potato, cabbage and Haricot beans and also less pasta, but the same rule applies about making it up to the marked area before adding the pasta. Either version works really well.
This recipe comes from an Australian Women’s Weekly ‘Pies without Pastry’ liftout dated August 1994. I love the first paragraph explaining what couscous is and where you can buy it. It was obviously a very new ingredient back then, quite a contrast to how easy it is to find in every supermarket now.
There was a time when racks of lamb were a lot cheaper than they are now, so using them in a casserole was probably OK, but with the price they are now I think I’d make this recipe with a cheaper lamb cut – chump chops would work just as well.
Everyone has a quick pasta recipe these days and at first glance this one doesn’t seem all that unusual, but back when Mum cut this one out it was a fairly new idea for her. At that time the only pasta dish she made spaghetti bolognese.
This starts off as a classic Scotch Egg recipe – hard boiled eggs, covered in sausage mince, rolled in breadcrumbs and fried. That’s the way I’ve always made them mostly to take on picnics. The twist here is that you put them in a tomato sauce and bake them. Certainly different – maybe worth a try!
