  • 1 red pepper, julienned
  • 1 yellow pepper, julienned
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 pound orzo pasta, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 pound peeled crawfish tails (available at fish market)

Directions
  • In a large skillet, heat oil. Add the onion, peppers, and celery and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until soft. Add the cayenne pepper, oregano, and salt, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, toasting the flour to a light brown color. Add the hot water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer mixture for 10 minutes.

  • As sauce simmers, cook the pasta, timing pasta to finish cooking at the same time as the sauce. Add the crawfish to sauce, and continue simmering for 5 minutes. Add the green onions and cook for 1 minute more. Add cream and heat gently. Spoon crawfish mixture over orzo pasta in large pasta dishes.
