  • Olive Garden Pasta Pass

And this year, 50 pasta lovers will have the chance to buy an eight-day trip to Italy in addition to eight weeks of unlimited pasta.

Olive Garden's $100 Never-Ending Pasta Pass returns on Thursday with a new bonus. If you're the lucky holder of one of these "Pasta Passports" you'll be able to travel to Italy for only $200 (I may not be American, but even I know that's cheap).

The 22,000 pasta passes and 50 pasta passports both go on sale at PastaPass.com on Thursday, September 14, at 2 p.m. ET.

Guests who claim one of 22,000 pasta passes, will enjoy eight weeks of access to unlimited pasta. Once overseas, they will visit Siena, Florence, Assisi, Rome, the Vatican City and Pisa.

The Pasta Passes can be redeemed between 9/25/17 and 11/19/17 at any US Olive Garden location.

The limited "Pasta Passport" includes the eight weeks of unlimited pasta, and an eight-day, seven-night all-inclusive trip to Italy for two, according to the release. The trip, which will take place April 7-14, 2018, includes airfare, ground transportation, hotels, meals, and daily activities throughout the country.

Of course, the deal isn't just for pasta. soup, salad, and breadsticks are also covered on the card.

In 2014, the passes sold out in 45 minutes and a lot of people turned to eBay to either sell or buy and the next year, in 2015, the pasta passes sold out in seconds.
