Recipe For Crayfish Pasta With Brandy

Today is Tandy Tuesday, and it is also nearing the start of the new crayfish season. I have given a few crayfish away as gifts to make sure we get through the pile left over from last season. However, rumour has it that we may only be able to catch one crayfish per day, and if that is the case we will not be going out this summer. This weeks’ recipe is for Crayfish Pasta With Brandy.
