  • Install onions, Magic Swamp Dust and Seafood Boil in pot with oil.
  • Sauté' at a high fire, adding 1 1/2 cups water at a time as needed to wash gratin' from sides of pot.
  • Stirring and scraping sides as needed to turn onions a very dark brown without allowing them to stick and burn, (approx. 20 minutes, pending fire).
  • When onions are ready, put in 1 #10 can of mushrooms stems & pieces, 18 quarts of water, Bar B Que Sauce, and stir.
  • Add in pork, because pork takes longer to cook (approx. 45 minutes), then add in chicken.
  • Bring to a boil until chicken is tender.
  • Add sausage and turn off fire and let stand for 1/2 hour. This will allow meats to cool and the juices and flavor to penetrate the meats.
  • After cooling period bring back to a rapid boil then stir in pasta.
  • Using a medium fire, bring water back to a boil, scraping the sides and the bottom of the pot and turning pasta - DO NOT STIR. (use caution - over stirring will make the pasta gummy).
  • After pasta has swollen and most of the water is gone, check by biting on one noodle...
  • Cover and let stand 10 minutes and lift bottom of pastalaya to the top and let stand 15 minutes before serving.
  • Serve as a main dish and keep your eye on your guest, they will try and eat it all.
