Olive Garden is entering the next phase of its Never Ending Classics promotion, and we are stoked!
Delish reports that this throwback to unlimited pasta will include all the classic favorites, such as spaghetti with meat sauce, fettucine Alfredo (with or without chicken), chicken parmesan and lasagna. You can even swap out your lasagna (or whichever first dish you chose) for a chicken parm (or whichever other dish you chose) if you'd like! The price is $11.99, so make sure you wear some baggy clothes and fill up.
The limited time offer runs until March 6, 2017, and according to an Olive Garden press release, the five entrees that are part of this program are the customer favorites.
"First we introduced unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks. Then we debuted Never Ending Pasta Bowl. And now we're excited to give our fans the chance to revel in unlimited helpings of their favorite Olive Garden classics," said Jose Duenas, executive vice president of marketing. "We selected five of our most popular entrees so guests may indulge in as many of their favorites as they want, all at an incredible value." The deal also includes "homemade soup or salad," and breadsticks.
This is the first time Olive Garden has ever made their classic dishes endless, according to their website. The inspiration came from how well the endless pasta bowl promotion worked the last time around. I have to admit, it's not surprising. "Endless" has a pretty good ring to it.
If you aren't familiar with Olive Garden's classics, now's the time to jump onboard and try a bit of everything. The spaghetti and meat sauce involves beef and Italian sausage in a tomato sauce over spaghetti noodles. The Alfredo sauce in the fettucine dish is made with heavy cream, garlic and parmesan cheese. The Lasagna Classico features layers of pasta with the meat sauce described above and parmesan, mozzarella and pecorino-Romano cheeses. Finally, the chicken parmesan consists of two breaded chicken breasts covered in Olive Garden's homemade marinara sauce and Italian cheeses.
If those descriptions don’t make you want to run to your nearest Olive Garden, I don't know what will.
