  • Olive Garden just debuted an unorthodox take on nachos.
  • The chain is now serving fried lasagna sheets topped with cheese, ragu, and alfredo sauce.
  • Reactions have been mixed.

Olive Garden, the fabled chain sworn to uphold Italian tradition in a casual-dining setting, is now serving nachos.

The dish, appetizingly named “loaded pasta chips,” is essentially fried lasagna sheets topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, a three-meat ragu sauce, cherry peppers, and alfredo sauce.

The nachos debuted on the menu last week to the tune of $6.99 a plate. They’ll be available at Olive Garden until April 1, according to Foodbeast.

This doesn’t sound all that Italian, but for a chain that doesn’t even salt its pasta water, it seems par the course.

Many Twitter users have sounded off on this rather unorthodox menu item.

Other users appear to be taking the Italian-Tex-Mex franken-dish in stride.
