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!!

I THOUGHT THIS RECIPE COULD HAVE BEEN VERY DELICIOUS IF IT HAD NOT BEEN SOOOOOOOOOO! VERY HOT. I SHOULD NOT HAVE USED AS MUCH CAYENNE PEPPER AS THE RECIPE CALLED FOR. I COULD TELL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN DELICOUS OTHERWISE, BUT IT WAS REALLY TOO HOT TO ENJOY. I WILL MAKE IT AGAIN, BUT NOT WITH THAT MUCH CAYENNE.

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.

This recipe was (IS) delicious! I am a true Cajun from South Louisiana, and I served it to my family (extended, of course) on Good Friday, instead of the traditional crawfish boil. Everyone loved it! It was a little too spicy for the kids, but these kids are all under age 5 - a little less cayenne pepper would likely have made it more palatable for them. This recipe is a keeper. I will definitely make this again!

OH MY GOSH!!!!! If we could rate this 50 stars!, man this is goooooood stuff. Served this at a dinner party and everyone could not believe how good (NO GREAT)it was (is). The only thing I'll do different next time is not bake it in the oven, it sort of dried the fettucine out. But still it was awesome. Thanks X 100.

This recipe is very good BUT watch out! it could be a killer!! I added only 1/2 the amount of cajun seasoning and 1/4 of the cayenne pepper and it is still SPICY!!!! I think it needs salt as well. I will make this again !!!!!!

This recipes was delicious! I only used 1 tsp of red pepper as per suggestion from other reviewers. It turned out great. My friends were begging for the recipe.
