A Spicy Crawfish Twist on Classic Lasagna

A Spicy Crawfish Twist on Classic Lasagna

When you think of lasagna, visions of layers upon layers of cheesy, saucy goodness might dance in your head. Now, imagine taking that classic comfort dish to the next level by infusing it with the bold flavors of the bayou. This recipe for Crawfish Lasagna, a creation by the culinary wizard Jason Derouen, also known as The Cajun Ninja, is here to tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving more, as per this Louisiana Cookin recipe. This dish might not sound as enticing as it truly is, but trust us, once you’ve experienced the symphony of flavors, you’ll be hooked.



  1. Begin your culinary journey by melting a half stick of butter in a large pan over medium-low heat. Let the chopped onion, bell pepper, and celery sauté for a tantalizing 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the finely chopped mushrooms and sauté for another 10 minutes.
  2. Introduce the diced tomatoes into the mix, letting them dance in the pan for an additional 10 minutes. Now, it’s time to add the pièce de résistance – the crawfish tails, minced garlic, and the unforgettable Pi-YAHHHHH!! Seasoning. Allow this flavorful medley to sauté for another 10 minutes.
  3. While your crawfish concoction is reaching perfection, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season it generously with salt and cook your lasagna noodles for 9 minutes. Drain, reserving some pasta water, which will come in handy later to keep the noodles perfectly textured.
  4. Blend the cream cheese into the crawfish mixture until it becomes a velvety masterpiece. Sprinkle in the Parmesan, ensuring an even distribution, and turn off the heat.
  5. In a separate bowl, create a luscious mixture by combining the cream of mushroom soup, fresh parsley, and dried basil. Preheat your oven to a toasty 350°F. Spray the bottom of a 13×9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  6. Prepare for the layering extravaganza! Move the crawfish mixture to one side of the pan, allowing the liquid gold sauce to pool on the other. Use this saucy goodness to coat the bottom of your baking dish. Layer with one-third of the lasagna noodles, one-third of the soup mixture, one-third of the crawfish magic, and one-third of the tantalizing Havarti and mozzarella cheeses. Repeat these layers twice, starting with the noodles.
  7. Slide your creation into the preheated oven and let it bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the sides of the dish are bubbling with anticipation. As the aromas waft through your kitchen, exercise patience. Let your masterpiece cool for 10 minutes before garnishing with a sprinkle of additional seasoning, if desired.
  8. Finally, savor each mouthful of this Spicy Crawfish Extravaganza Lasagna – a culinary experience that transcends the ordinary. Prepare for compliments and inquiries about the recipe; this dish is a showstopper!

As you savor each bite of this Spicy Crawfish Extravaganza Lasagna, let it be a reminder that culinary adventures are boundless, and the joy of creating something extraordinary in the kitchen is a reward in itself. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a novice cook, this recipe invites you to embrace the spirit of Louisiana and embark on a journey where every bite tells a tale of the bayou.
