Bongiovi pasta sauces use a secret family recipe dating back to 1890. Whenever Great Grandma Bongiovi would make sauce in her Italian village, neighbors would gather at her house, attracted by the alluring aroma of sautéed garlic and onions. This tradition has been passed down for generations and continues today. Eating in Italy is not just about satisfying hunger. It’s about coming together with family and friends. After years of encouragement, John Bongiovi, Sr. – “Mr. B” to those who know him – finally agreed to make his family’s classic pasta sauces available for everyone.
