ORLANDO, FLA. — Olive Garden announced the return of its popular Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion with an added caveat: Never Ending Pasta Bowl Pass. Beginning Sept. 8, customers may purchase Pasta Passes on-line to receive unlimited pasta, pasta toppings and Coca-Cola soft drinks from Sept. 22 through Nov. 9.

Only 1,000 of the passes are available for $100 starting at 3 p.m. E.S.T. Without the Pasta Pass, the Never Ending Pasta Bowl starts at $9.99.

“Never Ending Pasta Bowl is our most popular promotion all year — in fact, we served more than 13 million bowls of pasta during last year’s promotion,” said Jay Spenchian, executive vice-president of marketing. “We’re excited to celebrate pasta superfans with our limited edition Pasta Pass, which brings even more value and excitement to our guests’ Never Ending Pasta Bowl experiences.”

The passes may be purchased exclusively on the Olive Garden web site.
