It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Olive Garden is bringing back its beloved Never Ending Pasta Pass, which allows diners to enjoy seven weeks of Never Ending Pasta Bowls for $100 per pass. That’s right: the pass allows you to eat nothing but pasta for seven weeks straight, which is our definition of “the dream.” Last year, the pass sold all 2,000 available passes in less than one minute. This year, Olive Garden will be selling a whopping 21,000 passes, starting on Thursday, September 15 at 2 p.m. ET, so make sure to set your alarm now.

If you’re quick enough to grab a pass, you’ll have access to unlimited pasta, homemade sauces, pasta toppings, soup or salad, breadsticks and Coca-Cola soft drinks from Oct. 3 through Nov. 20. The most popular Olive Garden entrée, Chicken Alfredo, is being added to the line-up this year.


“Within seconds of last year’s Pasta Pass sale beginning, our most enthusiastic fans clicked ‘purchase,’ becoming part of an exclusive club and the envy of pasta lovers everywhere,” Jose Duenas, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden, said in a statement. “We know there are more fans than there were Pasta Passes so we’re expanding the club tenfold to give more guests an all-access pass to our most popular promotion of the year.”

Olive Garden devotees who forget to buy a pass can still enjoy a deal: from October 3 through November 20, diners can enjoy unlimited pasta for $9.99 per seating.

The passes will be sold on the chain’s website, so make sure to bookmark the link. You’ll never forgive yourself if you miss the opportunity to eat pasta exclusively for seven weeks.
