This recipe is great for ‘creamy pasta’ lovers. Fettuccine noodles can easily be substituted with angel hair pasta.

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound crawfish, peeled
  • 1 (8 ounce) package processed cheese food, cubed
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 pound dry fettuccini pasta

  3. 3 Stir in the processed cheese, half and half, Cajun seasoning and tomato. Cover and simmer for another 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta.
