Louisa Foods is a scratch-kitchen producer meaning all our pasta and fillings are made in-house, and from raw ingredients. Our commitment to in-house preparation includes braising meats, roasting vegetables, grating cheese and reducing stock. Furthermore, Louisa Foods chooses ingredients you would find in your own home. We could take shortcuts, as others might, but at Louisa Foods we believe "Freshness Matters."
Our pasta is made fresh, but to maintain that freshness for when they are enjoyed, Louisa Foods freezes our products. Freezing is a natural process that locks in flavor and nutrients. When you taste our pasta or appetizers at home, it has the same texture, quality and freshness as if you made it from scratch in your own kitchen.Evolving Pasta
At Louisa, it’s not about making the most pasta, it’s about making the best pasta.
Our chefs apply small-batch cooking methods to create products that taste like they were made one at a time.
Louisa products are featured in some of the nation’s top restaurants and our chefs have extensive restaurant experience.
The best Romano cheese comes from Italy—so our Romano cheese comes Italy. We use the best, because it matters.
Here, fresh onions, celery and carrots are chopped and simmered in our kettles. USDA cuts of meat are ground and slowly braised. Garlic and other vegetables are roasted in our ovens.
In our cheese preparation room, domestic and imported cheeses imported from Italy, are grated fresh daily. Soft cheeses, such as mozzarella and Swiss, are shredded.
Then, “Louisa-prepared” meats, vegetables, and cheeses are carefully seasoned, following instructions established by our in-house chefs.
No. 1 semolina and extra fancy durum flour are locally milled and custom-blended, then slowly kneaded with fresh eggs and water, thinly sheeted, and formed around our fillings by skilled pasta makers.
The Louisa Way—carefully handling select ingredients by talented artisans highly trained in traditional pasta making—is the reason we can proudly say, “Taste the Fresh Difference.”
