  7. Spread a layer of eggplant slices on the bottom of the dish, then spoon a layer of the lentil-tomato sauce on top. Repeat layers until ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of eggplant slices on top.
  8. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over the top of the moussaka, cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
