Crawfish Fettuccine

Leftover crawfish tails from a crawfish boil?

Make crawfish fettuccine!

It’s rich, cheesy, delicious, and it freezes well!

Here is how I make it.

Take a bag of frozen seasoning blend and toss it in a pot with melted butter. Cook on medium high heat until veggies start getting tender.

Add garlic, salt and pepper.

Add flour and stir, cooking for a few minutes.

Add crawfish tails and half and half.

Bring to a low simmer until sauce thickens slightly.

Add velveeta.

In a separate pot boil the fettuccine according to directions.

Drain pasta and place in a 9×13 casserole dish that has been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray.

Pour cheesy crawfish sauce over noodles, stir to combine.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Lord have mercy.

SOOOOO GOOD.

The next day I cut the refrigerated leftovers into squares and wrapped it wax paper.

Place in a large Ziploc bag and freeze. Now you have individual portions of crawfish fettuccine and all you have to do is pop it in the microwave and heat it up.

You’re welcome!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

When veggies are tender, add flour, stir and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Add crawfish and half and half. Bring to a low simmer, stirring frequently until sauce slightly thickens.

Add Velveeta and stir until cheese has melted and sauce has become smooth and glossy.

Add Cajun seasoning to taste (I did not add any more seasoning because my kids are sensitive to spice.)

In a separate pot, boil the pasta according to package. Drain pasta and place and a buttered or greased 9×13 casserole dish.

Pour sauce over pasta and stir to combine.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.

Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes or until bubbly.
