NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Here is a great example of the innovative Creoles using a seafood stuffing to create an interesting entrée. Normally, this was done in either chicken or turban of trout. In this recipe, the crawfish is stuffed into Italian pasta shells, baked and topped with a delicious Sauce Cardinale.

Prep Time: 1½ Hours

Yields: 6 Servings 

Ingredients for crawfish-stuffed shells:

1½ pounds crawfish tails, chopped

1 (12-ounce) box jumbo pasta shells

1 cup minced onions

½ cup minced red bell pepper

3 tbsps minced garlic

4 tbsps Worcestershire sauce

salt and black pepper to taste

granulated garlic to taste

2 eggs, beaten

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

Method:

Boil pasta shells according to package directions until al dente and set aside. Be careful not to overcook or pasta shells will fall apart. In the bowl of a food processor, add crawfish, onions, bell peppers, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Season to taste with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Pulse 2–3 times and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add eggs to crawfish mixture, stirring to combine ingredients. Fold into Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Stuff each pasta shell with an equal amount of crawfish mixture. Place shells in a 9”x13” baking pan and set aside.

½ pound crawfish tails

¼ pound butter

½ cup minced onions

½ cup minced celery

¼ cup minced red bell pepper

½ cup heavy whipping cream

1 tbsp minced tarragon

1 tbsp minced basil

1 tbsp minced parlsey

salt and black pepper to taste

Method for Sauce Cardinale:

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a 2-gallon saucepot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, bell peppers and garlic then sauté for 3–5 minutes or until vegetables are wilted. Add flour and cook until a white roux is achieved, stirring constantly. Add tomato sauce and shellfish stock, 2 cups at a time, whisking constantly until well combined and sauce is slightly thickened. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 15 minutes.
