Enjoy Your Pasta Like Tony Rigatoni & Linda Linguine... Never Ending, All Year Long

Written by

Tony Rigatoni and Linda Linguine are certified pasta enthusiasts. At least, that's what I gather since their names were on the first cards issued as part of the next evolution in Olive Garden's headling-making "Never Ending Pasta Pass." That's right, the O.G. (as my wife still calls it) is redefining "unlimited" by extending the Never Ending Pasta Pass to a year-long affair. 1,000 superfans now have the opportunity to buy an exclusive Annual Pasta Pass for $300. The first-of-its-kind Annual Pasta Pass includes 52 weeks of unlimited servings of guests' favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks. Somewhere, I imagine that WWE Superstar Virgil is lining up for a pass...

According to reps from Olive Garden, the "unprecedented" pass will be available to purchase alongside 23,000 $100 Never Ending Pasta Passes exclusively at www.PastaPass.com for just 30 minutes beginning Thursday, Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. ET. Last year, 22,000 Pasta Passes were claimed instantaneously, giving guests an all-access pass to Olive Garden's most popular promotion of the year, Never Ending Pasta Bowl.

Guests can choose among pastas, homemade sauces and toppings to create more than 100 possible combinations. This year, a new Creamy Spinach & Artichoke Sauce and Garden Veggies topping are added to the lineup.

That's a lot of Olive Garden...
