For many people, dinner at Olive Garden has a table overflowing with favorite foods. From those iconic breadsticks to the salad, a hearty appetite can be satisfied at that meal. In a recent announcement, one of most popular menu offers, Olive Garden Never Ending Pasta Bowl, has returned. Mark your calendars and come hungry starting October 3.

From October 3 through November 20, the Never Ending Pasta Bowl is back. While the guest favorite menu item has been on hiatus for the past two years, many people longed for its triumphant return.

This latest promotion marks the 25th year that Olive Garden has offered this feast. Starting at $13.99, guests can devour various combinations of pasta dishes, freshly baked breadsticks, homemade soup or a classic salad. While guests can add select proteins on top of the pasta dishes for an additional charge, the value that this popular menu promotion provides cannot be beat.

Included in this menu offer are four pastas, five sauces, and three proteins. The pastas are Fettucine, Spaghetti, Rigatoni, and Angel Hair. The sauces are Made-from-scratch Creamy Mushroom, Traditional Marinara, Five Cheese Marinara, Traditional Meat Sauce, and Alfredo. Lasty, the proteins are Meatballs, Italian Sausage, and Crispy Chicken Fritta.

Although a mathematician might figure out the exact number of pasta, sauce and topping combinations, the reality is that guests can eat at Olive Garden many times during the special offer and may not repeat their order. With potentially spending less than $20 for a such a large amount of food, the value cannot be beat.

Looking at the pasta combinations, the flavors are classic yet not bland. From satisfying that creamy, luscious craving to preferring a hearty meat sauce, everyone can have their favorite. And, if a guest wants all of the choices, that option is available, too.

Even though the popular menu offer is back for a limited time, it gets people excited about going back to Olive Garden. While fans will jump at the chance to feast, the food deal can get others to return to the table. It is time to put aside the carb conversation and dig into a delicious plate of comfort food.
