This was Michael's favorite meal for a long time while we were engaged and newly married. I hadn't made it in a while, so I decided it was time to bring out Emeril's recipe again :) I forgot how much I like it. I even ate it for breakfast this morning! (Yuck, I know. But it was good!)
OOPS! A sweet friend pointed out that I left you in the dark on this meal!
It's Emeril's Turkey Lasagna
