The Amazing Bon Jovi Family Pasta Sauce

Imagine tasting the sauce that Jon Bon Jovi sat down to every Sunday for dinner.

It’s a recipe that goes back three generations to the Sicilian town of Sciacca and one that 74-year-old John Bongiovi, Sr. doesn’t take lightly. This is a sauce that is only made now for major occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or in this case, charity.

Monday night during two sold out sessions at Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, Mr. Bongiovi served his signature sauce and other family dishes.

Bongiovi’s menu of seven entrees – ranging from traditional dishes like Chicken Parmigiana and Penne Vodka Primavera to Mussels Marinara and Baked Tilapia Putenesca – were pulled from his own recipes.

There was a suggested donation to the Soul Kitchen which feeds the needy in Monmouth County.

So, what is the “secret ingredient” to the Bongiovi family pasta sauce? John Sr. said:

Put love into it.


Jon’s brother Matthew said that their sauce was a staple that held the family together. There was never a “quick sauce.” It was an eight hour process that made enough to last the week.

There’s no way any of the Bongiovi’s are revealing their recipe, but their sauces are now sold in Saker ShopRites throughout Monmouth and Ocean.
