Olive Garden's most popular promotion—Never Ending Pasta Bowl—returns with the first-time addition of the restaurant's best-selling entrée, Chicken Alfredo. From now until November 20, the promotion will offer pasta lovers unlimited servings of their favorite pasta combinations, homemade soup or salad and freshly baked breadsticks, starting at just $9.99.

"For more than 20 years, Never Ending Pasta Bowl has become an iconic promotion among families since each guest can create their favorite custom pasta dishes for a great value," says Jose Duenas, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden. "This year, by popular request, we've added Chicken Alfredo—giving our fans unlimited refills of their all-time favorite entrée."

Never Ending Pasta Bowl includes options to please the entire family with more than 200 possible combinations of specialty pastas, homemade sauces and craveable toppings:

Pastas: Spaghetti, Rigatoni, Angel Hair, Pappardelle, Fettucine, Cavatappi and Gluten-Free Rotini

Sauces: Alfredo, Traditional Meat Sauce, Asiago Garlic Alfredo, Marinara and Five Cheese Marinara

Toppings: Meatballs, Italian Sausage, Crispy Chicken Fritta, Crispy Shrimp Fritta or Grilled Chicken can be added to any combination starting at $2.99.

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl, last month Olive Garden made an unprecedented 21,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes available to their fans, all of which were claimed immediately. This was the third year in a row Olive Garden sold Pasta Passes for its Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion. Last year, the restaurant sold 2,000 passes in less than one minute. Pasta Pass holders can enjoy unlimited Never Ending Pasta Bowls from October 3 through November 20 at any Olive Garden across the country by simply presenting the pass.
