How to cook Spaghetti Sauce - Cajun Style
First have all of your ingredient ready to go before you start cooking. Chop your Cajun Trinity. See How to Make the Cajun Trinity if you need help with this.
In the large pot and medium-high heat #7, place 1 tablespoon oil. Toss in the Cajun Trinity and sauté 5-10 minutes. Add the ground beef. Chop and stir often cooking thoroughly for about 15-20 minutes.
Add the tomato puree, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, Italian seasoning, bay leaves and water. Stir well. Cover. Lower the heat to #3 and simmer for 30-45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Mysteriously added to my sauce was chunky salsa, ketchup and no telling what else.
Fill the medium saucepan with water about 1-2" from the top. Sprinkle in Sea Salt. Bring the water to a boil and stir in the Rotini pasta. Lower the heat to #8 to prevent water boiling over. Cook 8-10 minutes. Turn off the heat. Drain in a colander in the sink. No need rinse. Bring back to the stove.
To serve Spaghetti Sauce at the table, spoon pasta in a deep platter and cover generously with Spaghetti Sauce. Grate fresh Parmesan cheese and sprinkle over the dish.
