Salt water and bring to a boil. Add lasagna pasta. Remove pasta from water and transfer to a cutting board. Cut pasta into 8-inch squares and return to pot of hot water in off setting of stovetop.

In a large skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter over moderately high heat. Add onion and bell peppers and sauté 2 minutes. Add crawfish, Creole seasoning, and red pepper flakes and sauté 3 minutes. Add tomato and cook 1 minute.

Cube remaining 1 1/2 sticks butter. Reduce heat to low and stir in butter, a few cubes at a time, stirring constantly and adding more only when butter is melted. Add chives.
