Our Story

Several years ago, I did a fundraiser for a close friend who had leukemia and everyone enjoyed the homemade italian food -  sauce and pasta.  Following the fundraiser, guests would contact me asking where they could purchase the sauce and we should sell in stores.  


After talking with my Chief and friend, Tom Kokoski, over a cup of coffee, we tossed around the idea of making this happen.


The question was asked as to what we were going to call this business.  Chief asked me, when do you usually eat your sauce and I said on Sunday's with the entire family.  


That is how Leo's Sunday Sauce was born!

Fantastic product with authentic taste. Only thing better than this sauce, is the family that makes it!!! - J. Robert


The homemade gnocchi topped with Leo's Sunday sauce were both delicious and amazing. I would highly recommend both the pasta and the sauce. The gnocchi cooks up nice and fast.

Best homemade sauce and fresh homemade pasta ever tasted!! Proud to carry their sauce and pasta in our farm market!! Leo and his family are very caring sweet people and so generous to donate to help good causes!! - Eichner's Farm, Wexford, PA


We started to carry Leo's Sunday Sauce and pastas at my family's farm in Wexford. I was finally able to try the sauce with their homemade cavatelli...it was phenomenal!!! We have the gnocchi to try next!! I think I might be in trouble having such easy access to purchase Leo's sauce and pastas.. They are DELICIOUS!!! Thank you for bringing us such a quality product!! - M. Eichner-Stewart


My family and I are huge fans of Leo's Sunday Sauce. It's the only sauce that I can eat without having reflux issues. I can finally eat spaghetti and other dishes again! - K. Kunst



My family and I just tried Leo’s Sunday Pizza Sauce! We tried both - smooth and chunky. Chunky is our favorite. We’ve also had Leo’s Sunday Sauce with his homemade pasta...also amazing! His Cavatelli is the best! - J. Packard
