Partner Spotlight: Father Dom

“So, I said, ‘Mom. You’re 93. When are you going to get a job?”‘

The next morning Father Dom woke up to his mother cooking a delicious batch of pasta sauce that he knew he had to share with his family, friends and the rest of his community in Kenosha, Wisconsin. It was a big hit and a new pasta sauce was born, Father Dom’s Mom’s Pasta Sauce. If the logo on the jar reminds you of Paul Newman’s there is a good reason for it.

We had so much fun talking to Father Dom about how the creation of his mother’s pasta sauce and why he still donates some of the proceeds from the sale of the sauce to Next Step. Find out all of the secrets behind the first pasta sauce to bring North and South Italy together in our interview with Father Dom below!
