BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Fresina Pasta Co., a 24-year-old Baton Rouge business that makes artisanal pasta by hand, has changed its name to D’Agostino Pasta Co.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1G2SEhd) the name reflects the change in ownership that happened two years ago, when Robert D’Agostino, Charles D’Agostino and Daniel Thompson bought the pasta company and expanded its operations.

Before the sale, the pasta was only available at two locations in Baton Rouge. Now the pasta is being sold at about 40 grocery stores from Lafayette to New Orleans, including Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Calandro’s, Calvin’s Bocage Market and Matherne’s.

D’Agostino Pasta Co. also has expanded to making pasta sauces, prepared at the LSU AgCenter Food Incubator.
