Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Set a large, wide-mouthed 6-quart pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil and pancetta to the pot and cook the pancetta until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add the butter and flour and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the milk or half-and-half and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Season with the salt, white pepper, and nutmeg and cook for 3 minutes. Add the crawfish to the pot and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and fold in the cooked pasta and grated cheeses. Stir to combine well.
  4. Transfer to a 3-quart baking dish such as a 9 by 13-inch casserole. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the Essence and sprinkle over the top of the casserole. Bake uncovered until golden brown and bubbling, 40 to 45 minutes.
