    Olive Garden, the Darden Restaurants Inc. chain of Italian restaurants, said Tuesday that it is launching its annual sale of the Never Ending Pasta Pass by offering 50 diners the chance to buy an all-inclusive week-long trip to Italy for themselves and a friend for $200. These "Pasta Passports" will be available along with 22,000 Pasta Passes for 30 minutes on Thursday, September 14 starting at 2p.m. ET. The Never Ending Pasta Pass offers eight weeks of unlimited access to the Never Ending Pasta Bowl between September 25 and November 19.
