Olive Garden pasta pass: Here's you can get pasta for life

Pass is available for the first time this year at Olive Garden

The chain says the lifetime pass has unlimited servings of pastas, sauces and toppings with unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks.

The pass will be available to 24,000 diners for $100 a person and the first 50 people to complete their online transaction can "opt-in" for the lifetime version and upgrade for an extra $400.

Florida- based Olive Garden is causing a stir this week with a unique promotion. The 50 who will be invited to pony up the additional $400 will be notified Friday, Olive Garden said. The remaining 23,950 regular $100 Pasta Passes are getting an upgrade too: This year, they'll run for nine weeks instead of eight weeks - making it that much easier to get your money's worth on unlimited servings of Never Ending Pasta combinations, homemade soup or salad, and breadsticks.

Lovers of the Italian Kitchen's fare can get the passes on the website on August 15 at 2 p.m. E.T.

The beloved chain known for its salad and breadsticks and massive portions is introducing a lifetime pasta pass, according to the company's website. "With the introduction of our new Lifetime Pasta Pass, we're excited to be a part of our biggest fans' memories around the table for years to come". The chain points out that, since a Never Ending Pasta Bowl typically costs $10.99, the Lifetime Pasta Pass pays for itself after 45 visits. The sale will last for 30 minutes or until the Never Ending Pasta Passes sell out, whichever happens first. This year, 24,000 passes will be sold.

Fifty foodies can buy a "Lifetime Pasta Pass" for $500 each beginning Thursday at 2 p.m.
