Ragin' Cajun Fettuccini

We found this recipe in a Paula Deen magazine yesterday and just had to try it. It was super easy and I had most of the ingredients on hand!


2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 (8-oz) package mexican Velveeta
2 (14-oz) crawfish tails
1 (16-oz) box fettuccini cooked and kept warm

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic; sauté for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender. Add flour and Cajun seasoning; cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in half and half; cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Add cheese, stirring until cheese is melted. Add crawfish, and cook until warmed through. Serve over fettuccini.

Good meal!!!! I only used one pack of crawfish tails (16oz.) and it was plenty. And I made it almost all by myself. Montana just had to help with a few things. I feel so domesticated!!
