Copycat Olive Garden Loaded Pasta ChipsI love a good Olive Garden copycat recipe – don’t you? I think that Olive Garden may be the restaurant we make the most copycat recipes from – partially because sometimes I go there, I think something is amazing, and then it’s gone faster than it appeared. That’s what happened with the Chicken Alfredo Spaghetti Pie that I fell in love with…only to have it taken away weeks later. Anyways. A few months ago, I saw their loaded pasta chips being advertised, and I knew I had to try them. . We went over to Olive Garden, ordered a batch, and they were every bit as delicious as I imagined! In fact, we ordered them again a few weeks later. I’m not sure how long these will be there (or to be honest, if they even still have them. We haven’t been to Olive Garden in quite some time!), but I know that they are something that I want to make time and time again. When you look on the website, it gives some information about what’s in them, but I found that it wasn’t as descriptive about everything. So I took notes as I ate them, and I think I have a pretty good understanding of everything on them. The loaded pasta chips have:
- Fried lasagna noodles
- Bolognese (which contains Italian sausage and ground beef)
- Alfredo Sauce
- Chicken breast – seasoned and cut up
- Italian cheeses
- Cherry peppers
How to Make Pasta ChipsA big part of this recipe is the fried pasta chips – and they are oh so delicious. They are pretty easy to make, and all you need is:
- Cooked lasagna noodles
- Oil for frying
