Last year we decided to add some pasta dishes to the menu. We tested them with some of our regular customers and they loved them. The hardest part was deciding what combinations of pasta, sauce and toppings to offer.
We finally decided to let the customer decide! What could be better than a custom pasta meal that you don't have to cook yourself. We introduced them in February, the weekend of the Critz Tybee Half-Marathon, and everyone loved them.
First choose from Manicotti, Ravioli or Tortellini, then choose marinara or alfredo sauce. Next pick chicken, meatballs, ham or sausage as your meat, and add two vegetable toppings; onions, green peppers, black olives, mushrooms, spinach or tomatoes. Or skip the meat and have three vegetables for a primavera pasta. For the seafood version, pick shrimp or scallops and two vegetables. They all come bubbling hot, topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese and are oh, so good.
The pasta meals come with a side salad and garlic toast.

On Tybee, spring has more to do with temperature and state of mind than it does with the calendar. With warm temperatures hitting in February on President's Day weekend, Tybee turned to spring.
And just in time. We have visitors coming down for spring break, the island was packed last weekend as we celebrated Mardi Gras and we have two weekends of celebration for St. Patrick's Day coming up. Tybee celebrates this weekend, March 12, with the Irish Heritage Festival, then the big weekend begins on St. Patrick's Day with all the celebrations spilling over from Savannah.
And we're excited about spring at Lighthouse Pizza. We have new items on the menu, plans for an expanded selection of craft beer on draft and much more coming up for spring and summer.
Hope to see you soon!
