  1. Cook pasta al dente. Rinse and drain. Set aside.
  2. If using frozen or unseasoned crawfish tails: Allow crawfish tails to thaw out and place in medium mixing bowl. Cover the crawfish tails with 1-2 tablespoons of liquid crab boil. Fill the bowl with iced water, just enough to cover all of the crawfish tails. Allow to marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Melt the butter and saute the garlic for about 2 minutes; add the sliced green onion and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream, cayenne pepper, and Cajun seasoning. Continue to add seasoning to taste. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add crawfish and cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until adequately thickened and heated through.
  6. Stir in pasta, parsely, and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve immediately.
