This recipe is near and dear to my heart and stomach. My daddy made many dishes based off tomato sauce, garlic and onions. This recipe is no different but, feels very southern and New Orleans style. It's very easy to make and your family should love it.

Directions

  1. Sautee sausage, garlic, bell pepper and onion in olive oil. Add all the seasoings except the fil`e and simmer. Then add tomato sauce and water. Let simmer a while longer. Then add bay leaf. Let simmer about 5 minutes and then add shrimp (cleaned and devained). Now add frozen Okra and canned corn (I like this combo though you can use both fresh). Let simmer about 10-15 minutes Taste for good salt taste, if okay, add gumbo file and stir good to mix in well. Turn off heat and let sit for a while. Serve over white rice with your favorite bread. Enjoy.
