Anniversary Crawfish Lunch

Jesse and I celebrated 16 years of marriage last week! I had some boiled crawfish tails in the freezer and knew I wanted to use them to make something special. Our anniversary was the perfect time :)

I looked at a few different creamy crawfish pasta recipes and decided to make up my own. Big surprise ;) The taste of the crawfish really comes through!

I used leftovers from a crawfish boil, so the tails were seasoned really well. If yours are not preseasoned, don't forget to spice them up!


16 oz pasta, cooked (I used spaghetti, broken into 1/2 inch pieces)
1 stick butter
3/4 c. chopped onion
2/3 c. chopped red bell pepper
1/2 c. chopped celery
2 chopped green onions
2 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
3 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
2 lbs cooked crawfish tails
2 c. heavy cream

Melt butter over medium heat. Add onions, red bell peppers, and celery. Cook until almost soft. Add green onions and garlic. Cook for a few more minutes. Mix in crawfish, cream, and parsley. Heat through. Combine with pasta.
