This crawfish pasta can save your life after a long day! It’s super quick and a definite crowd pleaser! If you don’t have the time to pick up crawfish, use rotisserie chicken or shrimp.

Ingredients for Crawfish Pasta

  • 1\2 stick of salted or unsalted butter
  • 1\4 cup of flour
  • 1 quart of heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 bundles of green onions
  • 1 table spoon of garlic

Directions for Crawfish Pasta

Step 1:  Make roux

Melt butter in the pot that your cooking the meal in, add flour and whisk around until well blended on a medium heat for 4 mins.  Remove roux from heat, keep stirring for 3 mins, this will cool the roux down so it wont splash when you add the cream.
