Mom's Cajun Spaghetti

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

This is the spaghetti sauce I grew up eating. While we are not considered Cajun, my father's family does have a Cajun backgroud. The measurements in this recipe are pretty much estimates, because seasoning will depend on preference, but it does give you some sort of guideline. Also, I am giving you quantities for canned and frozen veggies, but fresh can be used in equal quantities to make this even better.

This was fabulous. I doubled the amount of Cajun Season (salt free) I did not add mushrooms and I used meat balls instead of ground beef. YMmMMM I will be making this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook meat and onion until meat is no longer pink.
  2. Add seasonings, tomatoes, okra and mushrooms, cover and cook on low for approximately 30 minutes.
  3. We like this spicy, so I usually add more cajun seasoning than this recipe calls for.
  4. Also, the longer this sits, the better it gets.
  5. Serve over cooked spaghetti.
