For $100, the pasta passes provide eight weeks of unlimited pasta, soup or salad, and breadsticks. This year the Italian-style chain will celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the Never Ending Pasta Bowl. If you're the lucky holder of one of these "Pasta Passports" you'll be able to travel to Italy for only $200 (I may not be American, but even I know that's cheap).

The Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Pass promotion will return with passes on sale starting at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Sept. 14.

This year, the promotion got more interesting, with a new "Pasta Passport to Italy".

Stops will include Siena, Florence, Assisi, Rome, Vatican City, and Pisa.
