This delicious entertaining-worthy casserole was submitted by employee Sandra Bellomo for a company cooking contest. This Greek twist on lasagna may seem a little time consuming, but it's much easier than you'd think. And completely worth every minute of the prep time. Whether it's for a Sunday dinner or a special family occasion, there's no wrong time to make this wonderful comfort-food classic casserole.

Step 1
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add celery, onions and garlic; cook and stir 5 min. or until softened. Add turkey; cook on medium heat 8 min. or until done, stirring frequently. Add pasta sauce, tomato paste and dried herbs; mix well. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 min., stirring occasionally.
Step 2
Meanwhile, cook pasta in medium saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. While pasta is cooking, combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large bowl; whisk in milk until blended. Melt butter in large saucepan on medium heat. Gradually whisk in milk mixture; bring to boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 5 min. or until slightly thickened, (Sauce should be thick enough to coat spoon.) Remove from heat; let stand 2 min. Stir in cheese, then egg.
Step 3
Heat oven to 375ºF.
Step 4
Drain pasta. Spread thin layer of pasta sauce mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with half of the pasta. Cover with remaining pasta sauce mixture. Pour milk mixture over layers in baking dish.
