Here is a great dish for crawfish tails. I think that pasta is probably the best accompaniment to the mudbugs. Of course, being Italian might color my judgement.

1/2 cup Butter

1/4 cup Olive Oil

1 clove Garlic, crushed

1 cup fresh Mushrooms, sliced

1 pound Crawfish Tails

1/2 cup Green Onions, chopped

1/4 cup fresh Parsley, chopped

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

1 cup Heavy Cream

Creole Seasoning to taste

8 ounces Linguini, cooked al dente

Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet. Sauté garlic and mushrooms until mushrooms are tender. Add crawfish tails and green onions. Cook for 5 minutes over low heat. Stir in chopped parsley. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and add heavy cream.  Simmer for 5 minutes. Add Creole seasoning to taste. Toss linguini with sauce and serve.
