  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a rolling boil; stir in the egg noodles and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, and parsley. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the crawfish tails and Cajun seasoning; simmer 5 minutes longer.
  3. Pour in the heavy cream, mushrooms, and 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese; stir until the cheese has melted. Toss the pasta with the crawfish sauce and green onions; sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar cheese.

Easy to make and quick. I followed recipe exactly as written, but found it to be too salty, wish I had added the Tony's gradually (not sure what I was thinking), we like spicey so that wasn't a ...

Oh Ya-Ya yeah! , this is one good dish. My only changes are to use another pasta- bowties, cavatelle- even linguine (the noodles don't have enough bite for me). A comfort food from LA, and ...
