There’s no denying that, if given the choice or opportunity (or unlimited eating powers), I would eat through the entire Olive Garden menu in a single sitting. I just can’t help myself. While a lot of my old Italian relatives scorn the Olive Garden for not being 100% authentic Italian food, I don’t care. To me, Olive Garden is 100% delicious and I can’t get enough of it.
So, instead, I turn to copycat Olive Garden Recipes. The only difference between these delicious copycat recipes and the dishes you order at Olive Garden is that you have to actually make them. In terms of flavor and taste, copycat Olive Garden recipes are pretty much identical to what your server would bring you. I’m not kidding.
Don’t believe me? Below are some of my all-time favorite homemade Olive Garden recipes. From recipes for their breadsticks to recipes for some of their most famous meals, you’ll find that you can make all of the Olive Garden dishes you love right in your own kitchen (and pretty easily)!
(Note: I may have gone a little overboard with just how many recipes I’m sharing with you. I just have too many Olive Garden favorites to choose from!)
