The Lifetime Pasta Pass includes a lifetime of unlimited servings of your favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks.

You can take part in the Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion on a nightly basis instead, with the unlimited perks starting at $10.99.

The company will sell 24,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes beginning at noon Mountain Time on Thursday.

Those who opted in for the Lifetime passes will be notified if they qualify the following day, at which point they can finish their transactions and start scoping out real-estate listings near their preferred Olive Garden.

But there's something even bigger this year. Still, if you just dropped into Olive Garden once a month, the pass will still have paid for itself in less than four years - and let's be honest: If you had that pass, you'd definitely have lunch at Olive Garden a lot more often.

This rule change on benefits could be the most drastic of all the Trump administration's immigration policies, experts have said. Immigration advocates worry the new rules will scare immigrants into not asking for help.

The Never Ending Pasta Pass is $100 plus tax and gives you nine weeks of unlimited servings of pastas, sauces and toppings from the restaurant's Never Ending Pasta Bowl menu.

The passes can be purchased exclusively for 30 minutes or until sold out, starting at 8 a.m. on August 15.

Olive Garden claimed that, if one were to purchase the $500 Lifetime Pasta Pass and somehow consume a bowl of pasta per day for 60 years, each bowl would cost less than three cents apiece.

Those who want to upgrade that pass to one that lasts a lifetime can opt in to the "Lifetime Pasta Pass" for an additional $400 plus tax.

Want a piece of the action but not sure you can handle the intensity of either pass?
