Recipe - Crawfish Boil Pasta

Ok, let's go on and put this out there - Kevin and Amanda's Spicy Sausage Pasta is probably my favorite recipe ever.

It's just genius.  It takes like 30 minutes, messes up one dish, uses simple ingredients, and is SO amazingly good.  And the leftovers are even better.

One thing I love about it is that it's so versatile.  It could be changed up to make just about any variation you'd like.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a crawfish boil with some friends.  If you've never been to one - you're missing out.  Amazing, amazing food.  But one of the things about it is that you have a ton of leftovers.  And sometimes you have to get a little creative with how you use them.
