Olive Garden to offer year-long 'Pasta Pass' for $300

Olive Garden is offering pasta for a year at one low price.

The Italian casual restaurant is upping its “Never Ending Pasta Pass” promotion by offering an annual card which allows the holder to enjoy a yearlong pasta binge for $300.

But there’s a catch, there are a limited quantity being offered — only 1,000 passes.

The company has offered the “Pasta Passes” in recent years, but this is the first time they are offering a yearlong pass.

The passes give diners all-you-can-eat pasta dishes with toppings, along with soup or salad and breadsticks.

An 8-week pass is also being offered for $100 and chances are somewhat better that you can land one of these — there will be 23,000 available.

The pasta passes go on sale Thursday at 2 p.m. and will be sold through www.pastapass.com .

Olive Garden says 22,000 pasta passes were claimed instantaneously last year.

Olive Garden’s executive vice president of marketing, Jennifer Arguello, says the annual pass was added after customers made it clear eight weeks was not enough.
