Olive Garden's executive vice president of marketing, Jennifer Arguello, told ABC News they wanted to "truly live up" to the term never-ending.

"It’s important to us that our biggest brand fans have been with us through all of their special occasions. With the introduction of the Lifetime Pasta Pass, we’re able to continue making memories with them for a lifetime," she explained.

For this year's never ending pasta promotion, Olive Garden added creamy roasted garlic sauce to the menu.

The menu was made for mixing and matching and has more than 100 possible combinations of pastas, sauces and toppings.

The pastas: Fettuccine, spaghetti, rigatoni, angel hair, cavatappi, whole grain linguine, gluten-free rotini.

The sauces: Creamy roasted garlic, creamy mushroom, traditional marinara, five cheese marinara, traditional meat sauce and alfredo.

The toppings: Garden veggies, meatballs, Italian sausage, crispy chicken, crispy shrimp and grilled Chicken.

But according to Arguello, classic fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken is stil the resatuarant's best-selling dish.
