With over three decades in the business, these guys have perfected the process of producing deliciously consistent cheesecakes, cakes, pies and other desserts everyday. Of course you will find the traditional plain and strawberry-topped cheesecakes here, but one taste of their Turtle, Key Lime or other creations will turn you into a regular.

The concept is sim- ple: great Italian-American food on the go for a great, low price. You start by picking your paste—spaghetti, fettuccine, penne, cheese ravioli—then you sauce like marinara, Alfredo, meat sauce, or creamy pesto, and then top it off with a protein or two like meatballs, roasted chicken, pepperoni, or Italian sausage, and there you have it! If you’re in the mood for a salad or Italian sandwich, you will find many delicious options for less than eight bucks. Dine in the Pasta Company’s casual space, or zip through the drive thru on your way home or to the office. 5630 Saratoga Blvd. at S. Staples St. • (361) 994-6441 • PastaCompany.com • $ Pasta Company
