A year of unlimited pasta literally will be at your fingertips Thursday — but you need to act very fast.

Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Passes will go on sale at 2 p.m. ET Aug. 23. The passes entitle you to eight weeks of unlimited servings of pastas, sauces and toppings from the restaurant chain’s Never Ending Pasta Bowl menu. You also get unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks.

Sounds great, but there is a catch: Last year, the passes — all 22,000 of them — sold out in just one second. So, you will need to have your pasta-loving trigger finger ready Thursday for the moment the “buy” buttons on the Olive Garden website activate.

A pass costs $100 plus sales tax. It buys you unlimited Never Ending Pasta Bowls between Sept. 24 and Nov. 18.

This year, 23,000 passes will be available, an increase of 1,000 passes from last year.

New annual pass available this year

In addition, Olive Garden is rolling out a new “Annual Passholder” version of the Never Ending Pasta Pass. It gets you a full year — 52 weeks — of the same perks offered by the eight-week version of the pass.

The annual version of the pass costs $300, but there are only 1,000 available.

For instructions on ordering the passes, go to the Olive Garden webpage set up for the big day, where a countdown clock lets you know exactly when to click “buy.”
