NEW YORK – Olive Garden has unveiled its latest all-you-can-eat offering.

The restaurant chain known for its “never-ending” portions announced a new promotion Monday where customers can pay as little as $11.99 to consume endless piles of pasta — in one sitting.

This differs from past “never-ending” deals, like the Unlimited Pasta Pass offered the last two years where customers paid $100 for unlimited pasta bowls, soft drinks, salad and bread sticks for a seven-week period. Olive Garden sold 21,000 of those passes last year.

With the new deal, which started Monday, customers can consume infinite amounts of pasta, selecting from five entrees: spaghetti with meat sauce, fettuccine alfredo, lasagna classic, chicken alfredo and chicken parmigiana.

Depending on the dish they choose, Olive Garden diners can pay from $11.99 to $17.99 to eat until they can’t eat any more.

The deal, which lasts until March 6, also provides unlimited soup, and bread sticks.

The all-you-can-eat strategy seems to have worked for the Darden-owned restaurant chain, which reported improved sales late last year after being chastised by investors. Among investors’ complaints were the quality of the food, including the unlimited bread sticks.

Correction: An earlier version of CNN’s story incorrectly stated that drinks are included in the current all-you-can eat deal.
