Olive Garden, in its own way, is as American as American football. Accordingly, the casual family-dining institution is releasing a new appetizer that will let you bring Olive Garden to your Super Bowl party or your Super Bowl party to Olive Garden.
How are they doing that? Naturally, with an Italian (kind of) take on nachos (kind of), which will be available at an Olive Garden near you from January 29 through April 1. Lightly fried pasta chips are subbing in for the tortilla chips, and those chips will be topped with Italian cheeses, a meat sauce featuring chicken, meatballs, and sausage, plus cherry peppers and an alfredo sauce drizzle.
If you're entertaining and want to appear at the vanguard of football hors-d'oeuvres, Olive Garden has also released a recipe. You'll be using lasagna noodles fried and tossed in garlic salt, and you'll be able to express yourself by adding your own favorite Italian toppings.
