  • 1 cup butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 2 large onions, chopped

  • 1 ½ cups chopped green bell pepper

  • ½ pound sliced fresh mushrooms

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream

  • 1 pound jalapeno cheese food (such as Velveeta® Mexican Mild), shredded

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages cooked and peeled whole crawfish tails

  • ½ teaspoon Creole seasoning (such as Tony Chachere's®)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese, or to taste

  • 1 (16 ounce) package fettuccini pasta


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and flour. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 8 minutes. Pour in the wine, half-and-half, and jalapeno cheese food. Bring to a simmer; add the crawfish tails and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Season with Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into a 9x13 inch casserole dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and the dish is bubbly, about 20 minutes.

  4. While the crawfish is baking, fill a large pot with lightly-salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccini 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 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Serve the crawfish over the hot pasta.
