I'm from Louisiana, and this recipe takes the cake! It's one that tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen, when you didn't! Kids love it too. Wonderful with a salad, bread and glass of wine. I highly recommend this one!!

Hotter'n Hades and VERY fishy-tasting. But EXCELLENT !! I substituted skim milk for the half & half and used low fat Velveeta cheese. Takes a while to prepare but worth it. Yum yum yum :)

This was very good. I'm from Louisiana and have eaten my fair share of crawfish fettucine and this was really great. I left out the cayenne pepper so it wouldn't be too, too spicy. But I used the called for amount of cajun seasoning. I think next time I make it I'll use a different type of pasta----maybe thin spaghetti or linguine. Last time I made it I put it in the slow cooker for a work potluck, and it was better than baked. I didn't cook the noodles and put it on high for 3 hours. Much creamier than baking.
