Super Bowl Sunday has long been one of the most anticipated days of the year! This Sunday the New England Patriots will take on the reining champions, the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. While sports fans across the country are ready for an exciting game, many viewers are awaiting the epic commercials and half-time performance. In addition to the entertainment, Super Bowl Sunday is known for the beer and food that come with the celebration. Li'l Rizzo's is ready to make this year's Super Bowl experience the best yet!

Why Does Pasta Come in So Many Different Shapes and Sizes?

Pasta comes in many different shapes and sizes. In fact, there are approximately 350 different types of pasta around the world. These noodles can be organized into several different groups including long pasta (spaghetti, fettucine), tubes (penne), stuffed (tortellini, ravioli) and more! The meu at Li'l Rizzo's has a variety of different types of pasta.

Why All These Shapes and Sizes? 
Chefs use different shapes and sizes of pasta for different purposes because certain shapes hold different sauces better than others. Thin pasta, such as angel hair works better with thin oil-based sauce, while thicker sauces work better with thicker, heavier pastas. Flat pastas pair well with cream sauces, while tomato-based sauces seem to cling better to round pastas. What's your favorite shape of pasta?

Our restaurants offer the BEST pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks! In honor of National Pizza Week, we decided to do a little research and put together this list of what your favorite pizza says about you!

Cheese Pizza 
If you enjoy the simplest of all pizzas, you take pleasure in the simple things in life, not taking anything for granted. As a cheese eater, you have a lot of friends and you would do anything for them. You often put others before yourself and you love volunteering or working with charities. You might not have the courage to speak up when necessary because you don't like confrontation. You may also have a fear of change.
