3/4 (12 ounce) package

Cajun seasoning blend (such as Tony Chachere's®), or to taste
sliced fresh mushrooms

This was wonderful! I did halve the butter (and supplemented a little olive oil instead) and used fat free half & half. Topped with some panko--it was so delicious. I've been looking for something new to make with crawfish tails, and this one is going into the rotation for sure. Thanks!
This recipe was quite good but the cheese sauce overwhelms the crawfish. After tasting , I added some imitation crabmeat, 1/2 cup or so. The crab brought out a more pronounced flavor.
This was great!! I didn't have the exact seasonings listed so I added my own for taste and it turned out Great. I left everything else the same just added more heavy pint since sauce thickens. I will use this recipe again.
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 problem, just to salty. Worth trying the recipe, just pay attention to the salty factor.
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 very welcome here by me! Rich, yes- but don't skimp trying to make it less, especially on the cheese- but you can use half and half if that salves your conscience a bit. And you can use the lighter butter there also, the I Can't believe its not butter sticks give pretty decent results. Try this one out, you will like the mac and cheese creaminess and the veg and the crawfish. And do add the mushrooms, it's worth it- make sure you use fresh. To tighten up the dish a bit, I put it in the broiler with a dusting of bread crumbs on top, and that really sets it off! Thanks for posting this good recipe, Janessa. Love the mudbugs!
Too SALTY! DO NOT use 2 tbl sp of Tony Chachere's...maybe one! It wouldve been very good w/o all the salt! I used a lb of shrimp instead of crawfish and followed the recipe exactly with everything else!
