Stir and cook until shrimp and crawfish are mixed well (you can add the shrimp raw if you want to skip boiling the shrimp first). Stir in crushed red pepper. Add wine, half & half and mascarpone cheese. Blend all together to create a smooth sauce.
Add salt to taste. Return to simmer - do not boil. Stir often.
Put about 6 oz of Fettucini in a bowl and spoon 1/4 of the mixture on top. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and add pepper to taste.
