  • Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast) - yields 2/3 cup
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons - paprika
  • 2 tablespoons - salt

  • Directions:

    For Essence Seasoning:
    Combine all ingredients for seasoning and mix well. Set aside.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a large pot, bring several quarts of salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until very al dente, 7 minutes. Remove from water and place on a towel lined baking sheet.

    Place the olive oil, onion and red pepper in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sauté until the vegetables begin to sweat, about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey, turkey sausage, garlic and Essence, stirring to combine until turkey cooks through, about 10 minutes.

    Add marinara sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

    In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups mozzarella and remaining ingredients and set aside.

    Spray a 13- by 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup turkey mixture in bottom of the dish and arrange 4 noodles over turkey mixture; top with 1 1/2 cups turkey mixture. Spread half of cheese mixture over turkey mixture. Repeat layers, ending with the remaining turkey mixture.

    Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Let lasagna stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
