Olive Garden Review + Gift Card Giveaway

My aunt gives my husband and I a gift card to Olive Garden every Christmas to use for a "date night". I is absolutely one of my favorite gifts and I do the same for several of my friends. As parents, its hard to spend quality time together without our small children and a dinner date is always good for us. Olive Garden just happens to be one of my all time favorite restaurants.

Olive Garden recently sent my husband and I a gift card to test out some new menu items. Unfortunately, we missed out on the Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion, but I look forward to when that comes back. I had the New Stuffed Rigatoni with Chicken. I forgot my camera, so I took this with my phone-sorry for the horrible quality.

I never finish all of my dinner at Olive Garden, but I did that night! The Stuffed Rigatoni with Chicken was absolutely amazing and even though I like to try to eat something different each time I go, I will most likely order the same thing. Of course, it isn't a night at Olive Garden without their amazing salad and bread sticks that come with most entrees. I could eat my weight in their salad-the dressing is my absolute favorite.

I look forward to going back at lunch soon because they now have Paninis with prices starting at just $8.95 (Grilled Chicken Caprese, Grilled Chicken Florentine and Grilled Steak & Portobello), each served with their unlimited signature soup and salad, along with breadsticks. You can enjoy this lunch special Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I also noticed on their facebook page that on 11/11/11, they will be giving one free entree to veterans and active duty military!

Visit Olive Garden to learn more and to view their menu!

Five Cheese Ziti. Everytime they have the pasta deal I get the five cheese sauce. It's the best. And their salad is the bomb too!! You can buy their dressing for like $8 a bottle!
