A great marinara sauce for dipping those nummy breadsticks.

I'd love to see Olive Garden's take on something like the Cheesecake Factory's four cheese pasta. You can't go wrong with cheese and pasta! Haha

They should add a Crab Alfredo dish as an add-on to the delicious Fettuccine Alfredo on the menu. That would be divine!

I'm pretty sure I just order soup, salad, and breadsticks every time I go to Olive Garden, because that is basically my idea of the perfect lunch. I'm excited to see copycat recipes for the Pasta e Fagioli and Minestrone soups, since those are my favorites. The salad dressing would be worth giving a try, too!

I know they temporarily re-added the Chicken and Broccoli Cavatappi to the menu, but I REALLY want them to just add plain chicken and broccoli fettuccine alfredo to the menu. This way I don't sound like a crazy person when I substitute those weird pasta noodles for the right ones.

I'm not very familiar with the Olive Garden menu, so I just hope they never get rid of their delicious breadsticks. Yum!

There is this orange cream soda that I don't think is actually on the menu, but a waiter made it for me once as a kid. It tasted like a dreamsicle! I think that should be put on the menu in a more obvious spot because it was very good, although now I tend to just order wine when I go there.

I had a dish at Olive Garden a few years ago that was like fried Parmesan shrimp on top of Alfredo pasta and it was SO GOOD. I think it was a special because I haven't seen it on the menu since. So, I would add that to the menu!

Maybe this is cheating, but if they could somehow make a personal pizza using the dough from their breadsticks, I'd be totally on board.

I'm really into their berry sangria. It seems like they put every fruit that exists in there.

I don't know what I would add, but I do know that if they ever took off the Stuffed Chicken Marsala I would die. (It comes with garlic mashed potatoes!?!)

I would add veal marsala, as it is truly one of my favorite dishes and I cannot make it at home like they make in a restaurant.

My favorite recipe from Olive Garden would be the one for Tuscan Chicken.

That lemon cake photo makes my mouth water. I have got to try this recipe. It looks so moist and delicious. Have you made this? I love Olive Garden Chicken Alfredo. I am going to save this recipe for a family meal. I never made Alfredo but this should work well for us. I have Crohn's Disease and this is one meal I can eat!
