Just when you thought Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Pass couldn’t get any better (unlimited pasta!), its return this year is proving it definitely can.

Beginning Thursday, Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. ET, not only will 23,000 eight-week pasta passes be available (the most ever), but 1,000 serious pasta fans will also have the chance to buy an annual pass.

Yup, that means — brace yourselves — an entire year of pasta!


The annual pasta pass includes 52 weeks of unlimited servings of your favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks for just $300. This means that if you were to go every day, you would be paying less than $1 per meal!

If you’re not one of the lucky 1,000 to snag the year’s supply of pasta, Olive Garden will also be selling their usual Never Ending Pasta Pass, which gets you eight weeks of unlimited pasta (Sept. 24-Nov. 18) for $100. This time, in celebration of the 23rd anniversary of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl, there will be 23,000 passes available.

If you don’t get either pass, you can still enjoy the Never Ending Pasta Bowl beginning Sept. 24 — you’ll just have to pay $10.99 or more (depending on toppings).
