DSM Pasta Co. is the newest business in Des Moines that's rolling out fresh noodles, as well as prepared meal kits.

How it started: Kali Brudos and her husband AJ are lifelong hospitality industry workers.

  • For years, Brudos said she "begged" her husband to help her make fresh pasta at home after her mom gifted her a roller. One day, they finally made it ... and three more times that week.

What's happening: The couple launched DSM Pasta Co. at the beginning of 2021 and are rolling out fresh homemade noodles for people to order and pickup every week.

  • They have classic varieties like spaghetti and fettucini. But there's also beet-dyed noodles and rose-shaped ravioli.
  • Besides the pasta, they also sell pairings like pesto cream sauce and roasted garlic butter.

"You can definitely taste the freshness in the pasta," Brudos said. "It definitely has it has a little bit more of a bite.

  • You can order fresh pasta, meal kits and take-and-bake meals online here and pick them up at the Robert Mickle Center.
