Why is it the Best Sauce Ever?

Story Behind the Sauce

1991

Pasta Supper

While working at our families local Italian Grocery Store, Maureen would notice women "coming in to buy a jar of Ragu or Prego and some Pasta and that would be supper." Maureen said in a 1993 article.

Late 1991 / Early 1992

The Lightbulb

Maureen had been making Pasta Sauce using the family recipe since she was a young girl. So, she put one and one together and decided to start her business which would eventually be known as Nonna's Pasta Sauce.

1992

Incorporating

Maureen built out a full commercial kitchen in the basement of her home to prepare the Pasta Sauce that she would hopefully sell in local grocery stores. She applied for all the licenses and permits she needed to start selling. She financed everything using her life savings.

Late 1992

Start Cooking

Maureen opened her business in September of 1992, selling her Pasta Sauce direct to customers and at our families local grocery store. Eventually, she got her products into HyVee, Dahls, Fareway and some other local markets.

1993

Local Recognition

As Maureen continued to grow her business, the Des Moines Register wrote an article in the Small Business section of the states newspaper that featured her Pasta Sauce and her journey from the beginning.

1995

Des Moines' getting Saucy

Business was booming for Maureen! She continued to grow her customer base, and even began handling distribution of the Pasta Sauce herself by reinvesting her profits back into the business to purchase a refrigeration truck.

1997

A Hard Pill to Swallow

Maureen had poured her heart and soul into creating her business. Unfortunately, her health began to decline and by 1997 she was unable to continue running Nonna's Pasta Sauce, and the company went on the back burner for 22 years.

2019

Turn Up the Heat

Maureen's grandson, Dominic decided to relaunch Nonna's Pasta Sauce in his grandmothers honor. He vowed to sell the three Pasta Sauce varieties Maureen launched with, and continue growing Nonna's product line.

April 2020

Nonna's is Back

Taking over a year to renew licenses, purchase supplies and real estate, and establish reliable and quality manufacturing, Nonna's officially reopened in April of 2020 using the same family recipe his grandmother used nearly 25 years ago.

I've been looking for a Pasta Sauce since HyVee quit carrying one I loved. I ordered 3 jars of the regular & LOVE it! It is thick & has the perfect seasoning. I'll be buying more.
