Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 3 stalks celery, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 pound peeled crawfish tails

  • 1 (8 ounce) package processed cheese food

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream

  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • 1 pound dry fettuccine pasta

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic in butter until onions are tender. Stir in flour, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in crawfish. Cover, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often.

  2. Stir in the processed cheese, half-and-half, Cajun seasonings, and cayenne pepper. Cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Stir noodles into crawfish mixture; pour into prepared dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
