Jay Elowsky of Pasta Jay’s is getting sauced — in a good way.
The owner of Pasta Jay’s restaurant in Boulder (1001 Pearl St., 303-444-5800) — and in Lone Tree and Moab, Utah, — is taking his popular marinara sauce to the retail level.
Elowsky has served the garlic-infused sauce at his Italian restaurant for more than 25 years, to whoever passed through his doors. Now he wants to jar it up for the world.
“Over the years, we’ve made enough sauce to cover the Pearl Street Mall in marinara,” reckons Elowsky. “Now I’m ready to dish some out for everyone.”
Elowsky says he’s long wanted to offer the sauce on the retail level, noting that his first forays into food involved peeling garlic for his grandmom in her kitchen.
Customers can get a take-home taste this week, when the first jars of marinara go on sale at the three locations. ($7.99 per, with four servings per jar.) Elowsky says the red sauce could shortly appear at specialty markets, plus larger outlets.

Pasta Jay’s, the Italian restaurant concept founded in downtown Boulder more than 25 years ago, is manufacturing its pasta sauce for retail, officials announced Tuesday.
Pasta Jay’s plans to can its marinara sauce in 24-ounce jars and start selling them in its restaurants on March 24. Pasta Jay’s operates restaurants at 1001 Pearl St. in Boulder, at 9226 Park Meadows Drive in Lone Tree and 4 S. Main St. in Moab, Utah.
“This is something that’s been in the works for a long time,” said Jay Elowsky, Pasta Jay’s owner.
The intention is to eventually widen the distribution of the secret family recipe sauce to specialty grocery stores, he said.
“I’m trying to get it into the local markets here in Boulder and see where it goes from there,” he said.
Pasta Jay’s Marinara is manufactured at the Kitchen Network commissary in Denver, Elowsky said.
