Cajun-Style Tomato Gravy

Cajun-Style Red Gravy is one of the most delicious tomato gravies you will ever taste; made with a homemade roux never cornstarch, vine-ripened tomatoes, the Holy trinity of celery, onions peppers, Cajun spices and often served over grits, fresh hot homemade biscuits, fish, chicken, meatloaf, and even fried steak for a pure Cajun-Style comfort food experience.
