Sauces ‘N Love cooks in 1,500-lb. batches, but Paolo Volpati-Kedra, founder and CEO, says the company cooks its pasta sauces the same way he would in his kitchen at home. Volpati-Kedra moved to America from Italy in 1993 on a student budget and couldn’t afford anything more than pasta. His friends loved his sauce experiments and suggested he sell them, so he did. Sauces ‘N Love, which now employs more than 30 people, just won an award for Best Pasta Sauce of the Year for its Pumpkin & Kale Alfredo sauce.
