Homemade Venison Spaghetti Sauce

Prep Time: 2 MinutesYield: 3.5 Quarts
Cook Time: 21 MinutesServing Size: 1 Cup
Total Time: 23 MinutesCalories Per Serving: 330

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Cook the pasta according to the package directions, which is usually for 8-9 minutes in boiling water.
  6. 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…

  • Homemade Venison Spaghetti Sauce has lots of protein, vitamin C, and iron. 
  • It’s also, unfortunately, might be too high in calories, fat, and sodium for some.

See tips below for making this a more diet-friendly recipe.

The nutritional information does not include any cheese you might have added to the top–It’s only for the ingredients in the actual recipe, including the pasta and this is with it mixed together in a bowl like in the photo at the bottom of the page.

  1. I love the fact that there is a website that has recipes using deer meat. I personally love using deer meat because I’m a country girl. I hunt and fish. It’s easy to work with.

  2. I am 81 yrs now but was also a country girl and loved to hunt and fish. I love your venison recipe and I will use it this weekend. My family makes sure I have venison and I enjoy making different recipes. I hope you continue sending in different recipes as I will keep looking for them.

    1. Dea, it makes me feel great when people leave comments like yours so thank you very much for taking the time to do so. That’s nice of your family to make sure you have venison! Keep coming back for more recipes. I don’t post as often as I’d like but will continue to share my recipes as I can.
