Homemade Venison Spaghetti Sauce
Prep Time: 2 Minutes
Yield: 3.5 Quarts
Cook Time: 21 Minutes
Serving Size: 1 Cup
Total Time: 23 Minutes
Calories Per Serving: 330
1 lb ground venison burger
1/2 venison sausage
1 onion, chopped (optional)
2 28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes in puree
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
9 oz. thin spaghetti
In a large frying pan heated to medium-high heat, crumble the venison burger and the venison sausage and fry until done, which should be no more than 7 minutes.
Once the venison is done, drain any excess fat (if any) and add the onion. Fry the onion until it is somewhat transparent, about 3 minutes.
In a large kettle, add the tomatoes and all of the spices and heat until it boils and then remove it from the heat and add the venison and onions.
Place the kettle back on the burner and once it starts to boil turn it back to low. At this point, you just want to keep the sauce warm.
Cook the pasta according to the package directions, which is usually for 8-9 minutes in boiling water.
Once the pasta is done, drain it and put the spaghetti and sauce together in whichever manner you please.
Grab some spaghetti and pile it on a plate and cover it with the sauce or gently mix it all in a big bowl. I love to sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese and sometimes I mix the sauce in with noodles or spaghetti, put it in a casserole dish, sprinkle it with mozzarella cheese, and melt it in the oven. It’s so delicious!
Salad and a slice of garlic Texas Toast make great sides. It’s going to be good no matter how you fix it.
The good, the bad, and the delicious…
