  • Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté the yellow onions, bell pepper, celery, and garlic for approximately 5 minutes (or until the onions are soft and translucent).
  • Add the tomato sauce, Cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper powder, bay leaf, and lemon zest to the vegetables and stir to combine.
  • Lower the heat to low and simmer the sauce for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and remove the bay leaf. Add salt and pepper to taste (and any additional Cajun seasoning/cayenne pepper to taste), then serve the sauce immediately.
