I have given classic Greek casserol dish Moussaka a vegetarian twist.Vegetarian moussaka is a low calorie and easy alternative to regular moussaka .If you like you can add bolied lentils ,chickpeas or crumbled feta in addition to vegetables but i wanted to keep it light in taste as well as calories so made it with just veggies and cheese.
