If you were unable to snag one of the seven-week passes for Never Ending Pasta Bowls before they sold out last year, you'll have better odds this year -- about 10 times better.

If you were unable to snag one of Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Passes before they sold out last year, you’ll have better odds this year — about 10 times better odds.

The Italian-American restaurant chain announced this week that it will sell 21,000 passes this year, up from 2,000 last year. They will be available for purchase online for one hour, or until sold out, starting at 2 p.m. ET Thursday.

Bloomberg reports that Olive Garden has upped the ante because the chain is “facing a restaurant industry awash in deals and promotions.”

The passes cost $100 plus sales tax and come with free shipping. They buy you unlimited Never Ending Pasta Bowls over a seven-week period: Oct. 3 through Nov. 20.

Specifically, when they dine in, pass holders will have access to unlimited:

  • Pasta, sauces and pasta toppings
  • Soup or salad
  • Breadsticks
  • Soft drinks

Pass holders’ guests will also have access to unlimited soft drinks.

This year, Olive Garden has added its most popular entree, Chicken Alfredo, to its lineup of Never Ending Pasta Bowl options.

If you don’t snag a pass, you can purchase the same Never Ending Pasta Bowl options for $9.99 during the seven-week period.

Additionally, after the sale of passes ends, Olive Garden will also auction off more passes on eBay. All proceeds from the auctioned-off passes will be donated to the nonprofit Feeding America.
