Olive Garden is bringing back its unlimited "Pasta Pass" promotion, which allows passholders eight weeks of unlimited pasta bowls.

The restaurant plans to sell 22,000 passes at $100 each. The passes will go on sale Thursday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m. ET and will be on sale for 30 minutes.

They can be bought at

Last year, the 21,000 passes that were up for grabs sold out in seconds.

New this year is the "Pasta Passport to Italy," which includes an all-expenses paid trip for two to Italy.

The 50 available "passports" will go on sale at the same time as the traditional passes. They will be $200 each, and include unlimited pasta and the vacation.

According to the fine print, the eight-day, seven-night Italy vacation will take place on April 7, 2018. Roundtrip airfare, hotel, optional excursions and food are included.

The unlimited pasta pass is good for free pasta between Sept. 25, 2017 and Nov. 19, 2017.
