Outstanding! And I had everything in my pantry except the crawfish. A quick trip to the store took care of that. Got extra to go in the freezer. This will be the "go to" recipe for that, too. So quick and easy for a dish that you would swear took hours to prepare. Can hardly wait for leftovers tomorrow for lunch. Thnx so much for posting, -Mary-! Made for Spring PAC 2009.
