  1. In a bowl, combine the cheeses, egg yolk, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  2. Place 16 of the pasta squares on a lightly floured surface. Place about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture into the center of each square. Lightly wet the edges with water with a fingertip, and top with a plain pasta square. Press to seal the edges.
  3. Heat the oil in a pot over medium-high heat.
  4. Beat the egg with the water. In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the Essence. Dip the ravioli in the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs, one at a time. Add in batches to the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve hot with the Hot Sausage Ragu.
  5. Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
  6. Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
  7. Yield: about 2/3 cup

  9. Hot Sausage Ragu:
  10. In a medium pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until brown and the fat is rendered, about 4 minutes. Add the onions, garlic, crushed red pepper salt, basil, oregano and black pepper, and bay leaf, and cook, stirring, until soft, 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and their juices, tomato sauce, tomato paste, wine, cream, and sugar, and stir well. Bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thick and the flavors are blended, about 30 minutes, adding water as necessary to keep from getting too thick.
  11. Remove from the heat, and cover until needed.
  12. Yield: about 2 1/2 cups
