Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a rolling boil; stir in the egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, and parsley. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the crawfish tails and Cajun seasoning; simmer 5 minutes longer.

  • Pour in the heavy cream, mushrooms, and 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese; stir until the cheese has melted. Toss the pasta with the crawfish sauce and green onions; sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar cheese.

This was great!! I didn't have the exact seasonings listed so I added my own for taste and it turned out Great. I left everything else the same just added more heavy pint since sauce thickens. I will use this recipe again. Read More

This recipe was quite good but the cheese sauce overwhelms the crawfish. After tasting I added some imitation crabmeat 1/2 cup or so. The crab brought out a more pronounced flavor. Read More

This was wonderful! I did halve the butter (and supplemented a little olive oil instead) and used fat free half & half. Topped with some panko--it was so delicious. I've been looking for something new to make with crawfish tails and this one is going into the rotation for sure. Thanks! Read More

Oh Ya-Ya yeah! this is one good dish. My only changes are to use another pasta- bowties cavatelle- even linguine (the noodles don't have enough bite for me). A comfort food from LA and very welcome here by me! Rich yes- but don't skimp trying to make it less especially on the cheese- but you can use half and half if that salves your conscience a bit. And you can use the lighter butter there also the I Can't believe its not butter sticks give pretty decent results. Try this one out you will like the mac and cheese creaminess and the veg and the crawfish. And do add the mushrooms it's worth it- make sure you use fresh. To tighten up the dish a bit I put it in the broiler with a dusting of bread crumbs on top and that really sets it off! Thanks for posting this good recipe Janessa. Love the mudbugs! Read More

Easy to make and quick. I followed recipe exactly as written but found it to be too salty wish I had added the Tony's gradually (not sure what I was thinking) we like spicey so that wasn't a problem just to salty. Worth trying the recipe just pay attention to the salty factor. Read More

Too SALTY! DO NOT use 2 tbl sp of Tony Chachere's...maybe one! It wouldve been very good w/o all the salt! I used a lb of shrimp instead of crawfish and followed the recipe exactly with everything else! Read More

Doubled onions, added minced pickled jalapeno, doubled fresh ground black pepper, substituted provolone for the cheddar, simmered heavy cream to thicken, added a little Worcestershire and fresh crab claw meat just before serving and finely diced green onion leaves. Seasoned Cajun seafood lovers asked for my recipe. Served over garlic buttered fettuccine with lightly garliced french bread with a good white wine and Heineken beer for those that preferred. Raves from everyone. A gourmet meal. Read More
