Twenty-one thousand people will be able to purchase the $100 card, which entitles pass holders to as much pasta, breadsticks, soup or salad and soda as they can stomach during dine-in visits between Oct. 3 and Nov. 20. Last year, the 2,000 available passes sold out in less than a minute.
“We know there are more fans than there were Pasta Passes [last year],” Jose Duenas, Olive Garden’s executive vice president of marketing, said in a statement. “So we’re expanding the club tenfold.”
The Never Ending Pasta Pass is non-transferable, and you can’t use it for takeout. The online sale starts this Thursday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m. EST and will last for an hour or until passes are gone, whichever comes first.
Olive Garden will auction off additional passes later on eBay, with proceeds going to charity.
Or here’s a novel idea: Make some pasta at home. Yum.
