NEW YORK (AP) - Olive Garden's Pasta Pass will give some diners a chance to eat rigatoni in Italy.

The 22,000 regular passes on sale Thursday let people eat as much pasta as they want for eight weeks for $100. For an extra $100, 50 people will be able also buy an eight-day trip to Italy for two. The chain known for its breadsticks says the April trip includes airfare, a hotel and meals.

Olive Garden says it sold 21,000 passes in one second last year. The unlimited pasta bowl offer for pass holders starts September 25 and runs through November 19.
