Last night, J prepared a true Cajun favorite, Crawfish Fettuccini. I knew I’d make him a Cajun at some point. It was absolutely delicious.
The recipe below is from Real Cajun Recipes.
Pasta with cheese sauce and crawfish
- 1 stick butter
- 1 lb crawfish
- 1/2 small box of Kraft w/peppers cheese
- 1 pint half and half
- 1 (8 ounce) package Mozzarella cheese
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- Garlic, chopped, to taste
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- 1/2 box Fettucini noodles
Boil and drain noodles. Sauté bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic in the butter. Add the crawfish. Stir in only 2/3 of the pint of Half 'n Half milk and the Kraft cheese. Cook on low until all cheese is melted.
Butter a 2 1/2 qt. casserole dish and add noodles, top with crawfish mixture. Add to the top the shredded Mozzarella cheese and then pour the remaining half 'n half.
Bake at 350 until the cheese is browned. A meal by itself with salad and bread.
The recipe yields 6 servings. Prep time is 30 minutes. Cook time is 20 minutes.
Crawfish Fettucini, y’all!
