A favorite casserole that is popular in Louisiana. I saw it many times when I was living Louisiana and got this recipe from a friend there. It's easy to make, too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in pan, cook vegetables until tender. Add milk, can of tomatos, can of soup, and crawfish, and bring to a boil. Simmer about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and melt velveeta cheese into mixture. (works better if cheese is in chunks).
  3. Mix in cooked pasta, and place all in baking dish. You can put cheddar cheese and/or breadcrumbs on top, or leave it plain.
  4. Bake in oven at 350° for 25 minutes or until done.

I am also from Louisiana and this recipe is delicious! Of course, it is not "health food", but that was not claimed. I did add 1/4 cup fresh sliced mushrooms, 6 ounces of artificial crab meat and Tony's Creole seasoning rather than salt and pepper. I used the cream of shrimp soup rather than the cream of mushroom. I will definitely make it again, but I think I will use about half of the Velvetta cheese next time, just to make it a "little" less unhealthy!

um, okay. I'm from Lousiana and I've never heard of this. Very fattening, though, huh?
