Olive Garden. I just love how those two words roll off my tongue...and my thoughts instantly turn to endless salad and bread sticks. Come on...don't judge me. You KNOW you love those bread sticks. All that butter and garlic goodness nestled down in that little basket.

Well now, you have another reason to love Olive Garden...ITALIAN NACHOS. Before you go all purest on me and say the Italians have nothing to do with nachos, I know plenty of Italian people who LOVE nachos. Just sayin'.

According to foodbeast.com, this heavenly concoction is officially called, Loaded Pasta Chips. The website says Olive Garden uses pieces of lasagna as for the chips. They top that with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, add a three-meat Italian tomato sauce full of tasty chicken, meatballs, and sausage, spicy cherry peppers, and just a drizzle of alfredo sauce. Then they finish it off with a combo of Pecorino Romano, Parmesan, and fresh parsley.
