La Tua Fresh Pasta

We have been proud suppliers of La Tua pasta for a few years now. we were blown away with this authentic pasta and it is extremely popular in the shop. Each packet is 1-2 portions. La Tua Pasta was founded in 2006 by Francesco Boggian and his wife Caroline. Francesco decided to bring a piece of Italy to the UK by making truly authentic Italian pasta.

He wanted the pasta to be so well-crafted, and so fresh, that chefs would be proud to serve it as their own hand-made pasta. They have developed over 300 types of fresh and filled pasta! Sometimes even calling family and friends back in Italy to get old recipes and new ideas. We met Francesco for the first time at a food fair in Manchester 8 years ago where we tasted his wonderful pasta and have stocked it ever since.
