If you’re like us and Olive Garden is your absolute weakness, this might be the best news you’ve heard all year. The Italian restaurant chain is rolling out an all-new menu of Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta. Forget the breadsticks, we’re about to pig out on some Alfredo-smothered goodness. (Just kidding, Olive Garden, we love the breadsticks.)
What’s On the Menu?
When Olive Garden says stuffed, they mean it. All dishes on the Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta menu are packed with creamy cheese and drizzled in layers of sauce. The best part? YOU get to create your own dish. While there are only 4 dishes listed on the menu—Stuffed Ziti Fritta, Cheese Ravioli, Asiago Tortellini and Mushroom Ravioli—you can mix and match sauces and meats. Want a savory serving of mushroom ravioli with Alfredo sauce topped with fresh-cooked shrimp? Olive Garden will provide. We can’t wait to dig our forks into this delicious deal.
Olive Garden’s Best Bargain
With the new menu starting at only $12.99, you’re getting a real bang for your buck. That’s unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks ON TOP of Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta. If that’s not enough to scratch your Olive Garden itch, we don’t know what will. With all great things, there’s a downside or two. First, the new pasta deal only applies if you’re dining in, which means you can’t just order one for pickup and ask for 3 more servings. We know, it’s kind of a bummer. Second, Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta is not a permanent addition to the Olive Garden menu. It’s only around for a limited time. All the more reason to get in and get your fill before it’s gone!
This Isn’t Olive Garden’s First Rodeo
In the past year, Olive Garden has experimented with unlimited menu items and deals. You might remember last year’s promotion— an annual all-you-can-eat pass. Only 1,000 passes were sold for $300 each, and the annual pass was a total steal. For $300, you had a guaranteed meal for every day of the year excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta promotion will cost you more in comparison, but you’re still getting an insanely good deal for an insanely good meal. We’re not looking forward to the day Never-Ending Stuffed Pasta disappears from the menu, but we can’t wait to see what Olive Garden has in store for us next year!
