Drop everything! Italian nachos are now available at Olive Garden

Olive Garden launched their loaded pasta chips—AKA Italian nachos—and we couldn’t be more excited! (Can’t make it to the restaurant? Try this tasty Italian nacho recipe at home.)

So, how good are they? Let us paint you a picture.

The deliciousness begins with a layer of crispy, lightly fried lasagna sheets which are, by the way, homemade. Piled on top is a rich, hearty meat sauce—not unlike recipe our cooking community adores. Next up is an artful drizzle of Alfredo sauce. Truth be told, it’s kind of messy, but that doesn’t stop us from digging into the perfect mixture of Italian cheese. The dish is then topped off with cherry peppers which add the just the right amount of heat to the dish.

As to be expected, all things ooey-gooey, saucy, and fried will have no shortage of calories. There are over 1,500 in this dish! Though, right now we aren’t so worried about that. Sometimes you just have to let your hair down and eat the good stuff. Life is short, have the Alfredo.

So, what are you waiting for? Carbs be darned! Hop in your car and head to your local Olive Garden right now.
