For nearly seventeen years, Ohio City Pasta has consistently delivered high quality, fresh pasta.
As a one-man operation in 1990, Chef Gary Thomas introduced Ohio City Pasta to the Cleveland restaurant scene, realizing a need in time-stressed professional kitchens that did not have the staff or the equipment for proper pasta production. The chefs of Cleveland began to rely on Ohio City Pasta to deliver consistent quality pastas made specifically for them.
Since that time, he and his team have expanded well beyond the original flat cuts of pasta and beyond the Cleveland, Ohio area. Quality and consistency remain the focus as Ohio City Pasta’s menu of pasta products now include ravioli, gnocchi, tortellini and many other custom pasta products. Thousands of pounds of fresh pasta are being delivered throughout Ohio and neighboring states, still meeting the high expectations of Thomas and his customers.
About Fresh Pasta
Fresh pasta transforms an ordinary pasta meal into the extraordinary. It adds flavor and texture unparalleled by ordinary dried or extruded pasta products. American durum and semolina flours, the best in the world, are custom-blended as the essential base for all Ohio City Pasta products. Whole eggs add richness and texture to the pasta. No artificial ingredients or flavor enhancements are used. The finest and freshest spices and flavors that the world offers provides further distinction to Ohio City Pasta. Spanish saffron, telichery peppercorns, genuine squid ink, fresh herbs and countless other ingredients add quality, creativity, and endless varieties to the fresh cuts of pasta.
Limitless flavor combinations create enhancements to any meat, seafood, vegetable or sauce. No longer is pasta just a vehicle to carry the sauce. In addition, it is an ingredient adding flavor and inviting cuisines not normally associated with tradition. Roasted red pepper, lemon, garlic & chive, black pepper basil, orange-sesame ginger, cajun, chipotle, spicy lime and cilantro are just a few of the endless possibilities available from Ohio City Pasta.
Filled pastas, such as ravioli, agnollotti, and tortellini expounds the flavor possibilities even further. All fillings are made from scratch. Sautéed mushrooms, grated cheeses, and roasted butternut squash are all done in-house.
Fresh pasta cooks in a fraction of the time required by ordinary dried pasta. Depending upon the chosen cut of pasta, boiling time may be as brief as 30 seconds(!) and the longest cooking time being four minutes.
Available to the trade through local distributors. Home chefs will find Ohio City Pasta at The West Side Market in Ohio City and select high-quality grocers.
Dried, Never. Frozen, Never. Fresh, Always.
