This recipe has been passed down from my grandmother. It is my favorite one to make and my family looks forward to it once a month! This recipe is versatile. The recipe is for the vegetarian form of the sauce but you can add ground hamburger, ground turkey, Italian sausage or even shrimp!

How to Make Sally's Cajun Spaghetti Sauce


  • 1Cut green bell peppers and sweet onions into small pieces using a chopping knife or vegetable chopper. For a chunkier sauce, make larger pieces. You can also add sliced baby bella mushrooms!
  • 2Place chopped vegetables (and mushrooms) into a medium sauté pan. Add 2 tbsp. of olive oil or butter to the pan. Heat on medium heat until vegetables are clearer in color. Mushrooms will be smaller and darker. Remove from heat.
  • 3Add salt, black pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and Worcestershire sauce to sautéed vegetables and place on low heat to simmer. You will know it is ready when the spices create a thick coating on the vegetables. Approx. 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 4In a large sauce pan add cans of stewed tomatoes, tomato soup, and tomato paste. Add vegetables and stir together. Bring to a boil on medium heat. Turn heat to low and cover. Allow sauce to simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • 5NOTE: Hamburger, turkey or Italian sausage can be added to create a meatier sauce. Simply brown your meat of choice and add to sauce at the same time the vegetables are added. Turkey will make for a sweeter sauce while the Italian sausage will make for a spicier sauce.
