Dagostino Mafaldine "Elena Piccola" pasta

Quick Bites: Dagostino on the Louisiana Eats Podcast

Louisiana Eats Host Poppy Tooker Talks Pasta with L.H. Hayward CEO Vince Hayward 

When L.H. Hayward acquired Dagostino Pasta in 2019, the goal was continuing the nearly 100 year tradition of making authentic, handmade pasta and classic slow-cooked tomato sauces.

In this edition of Quick Bites from Louisiana Eats, fourth generation owner and CEO of L.H. Hayward Vince Hayward talks all things pasta with host Poppy Tooker.

"Visually, Dagostino pasta is stunning, with spaghetti lengths usually only seen imported from Italy...There are seventeen different varieties, many rarely seen on American grocery shelves like Elena, the width of a fettuccine noodle with a sexy ruffled edge reminiscent of lasagna. Additionally, Dagostino has added three emblematic Louisiana shapes to the line, alligators, crawfish and fleur de lis, perfect for gifts."
