From the moment the Elowsky family began serving up authentic, homestyle Italian dishes in their legendary Boulder, Colorado restaurant, creating delicious sauces made from only the finest ingredients has been fundamental. In 2017 Jay Elowsky decided to take those magical sauces, put them into jars and launched Pasta Jay’s premium pasta sauce brand.

Our slow-simmered sauce makes homemade pasta perfect!
FOOD FIT FOR A KING
In 1988, Jay Elowsky, along with his parents, opened the first Pasta Jay’s at 9th and Pearl. Featuring recipes passed down for generations, it quickly became an institution for wonderfully simple, delicious and honest Italian food. Thirty-some years later, it’s still a favorite of the Boulder Community and beyond.
Eating an Italian meal is a ritual: a gathering of food, wine, and family. In Italy, culinary traditions are like storytelling, passed down from one generation to the next.
This tradition of creating and sharing premium Italian meals began in 1861 when Jay’s “Mama Genovese,” passed down the recipes that her grandmother cooked for Victor Emanuel the Second, the first King of the United Countries of Italy.
Proud of his culinary heritage—Jay enthusiastically states, “Generations later we still use our family recipes to create food fit for a king!”
In addition to the original Boulder eatery you can find Pasta Jay’s in Moab, UT.
