Look at the steam rising up from the sauce – YUM 🙂
Homemade Venison Spaghetti Sauce is very easy to make and it’s a low-calorie meal that’s perfect for dieters. Even the kids will love it. You’d never know from the taste that it’s only 146 calories!
Once you’ve had homemade spaghetti sauce, you’ll never go back to store-bought. You can add whatever you want to the sauce–bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, etc… This is a great sauce recipe that you can use in many different recipes and it’s great for home canning as well.
I’ve used my Homemade Venison Spaghetti Sauce recipe and left out the ground venison burger and venison sausage, and instead, used the meatball recipes from my Spicy Venison Meatballs and Venison Meatball Subs recipes and it turned out awesome!
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 is very low in saturated fat and high in vitamin C.
- It’s also, unfortunately, high in sodium, especially if you’re on a low-sodium diet.
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.

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…
- The sodium is a little high and might be too high for those of you on a low sodium diet. The majority of the sodium in this recipe is coming from the added 2 tsp of salt and the canned tomatoes. You could omit the added salt or cut it in half.
- Omitting the salt would remove 333mg / 14% DV of the sodium.
- The crushed tomatoes in puree have 232mg / 10% DV of sodium. You could buy sodium free or low sodium tomatoes (look for organic) or you can buy fresh tomatoes and make your own and not add any salt. This will change the taste, but it will still be good.
