Mable Toups Venison Spaghetti

Mable Toups Venison Spaghetti is a delicious homemade venison spaghetti that’s irresistibly delicious! This is not your typical spaghetti! It has a little kick to it and it’s diet-friendly!

Mable Toups was a classic French-speaking Cajun grandmother from Louisiana. She cooked dinner for her family every day until she was about 88 years old. Her specialty was venison spaghetti and gumbo. Mrs. Toups passed away several years back, but her recipes still live on with her family and now you and your family will have the pleasure of trying her famous spaghetti recipe, too.

My friends Chera Kee “CK” Trosclair and Vhores Trosclair shared this recipe with me and I had to share it with my followers. Mable was Vhores grandmother and CK makes her spaghetti recipe all the time. She sent me a picture of it and I knew I’d love it. I was hooked from the first bite. If you love spaghetti and you love spicy foods you’re going to love this! It’s so easy to make, too.

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…

  • Let’s be honest, this is pretty healthy as it is! 
  • To help lower the cholesterol and fat use less fat in your ground venison burger. This recipe was calculated using 80/20 ground venison burger because that’s what most hunters use. If yours has less fat it will also have less fat and cholesterol. You can also use franks with less fat as well.
  • To lower the sodium, try using a salt substitute like “No Salt” or “Nu-Salt” and also use fresh tomatoes or use a low-sodium or no-sodium tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.
