    Moussaka you say? Not Quite, But Close… Layer up Carrots, Potatoes, Meat Sauce and Béchamel

    After making lasagne yesterday I had Leftover Meat Sauce and Leftover Béchamel
    I wanted to make something different with them, rifled through my fridge and pantry and found Carrots, Potatoes and some spinach
    I haven't specified quantities
    I think you just use what you have, I had a couple of cups of meat sauce and about a cup of Bechamel
    if you want to see how to make the Meat Sauce and Bechamel have a look here
    Peel and slice carrots and potatoes into rings
    Cook in microwave till just tender 2-3 minutes

    Toss in a slosh of olive oil Shake of oregano, salt and pepper
    Onto baking sheet and into 200 C
    roast for about 15 minutes till turning golden

    Place 2 cloves of garlic smashed with sea salt into a pan
    Saute gently till garlic just starting to soften
    Add washed spinach and toss well and wilt it right down
    Remove from pan and chop
    Back into a bowl and add 2 tbs béchamel sauce
    Mix well
    Season with freshly ground black pepper and some finely grated Parmesan cheese
    Now time to assemble
    Oil a suitable dish
    First layer potatoes and carrots
     Add layer of 1/2 the meat sauce
     Then the spinach mix
     Top with the remainder of the meat sauce
    Layer with the remainder of the potatoes and carrots
    cover with Béchamel Sauce
     Lightly Cover with foil
    Bake for about 20 minutes
    Take foil off and place back in the oven and bake till top is golden
    and bubbling
    Approx another 20 minutes the way, you don't need anything to go with it!!!
