Win an Olive Garden Culinary Institute Gift Pack!

olive-garden-culinary-tour-italyWin an Olive Garden Culinary Institute Gift Pack!

The love of Olive Garden runs deep in our family. Not only is it one of my father’s favorite places to frequent, but my husband loves it too. I mean really, is there anyone around who doesn’t love their soup, salad and breadsticks deal? (Not to mention the fact that they still give you Andes mints at the end of every meal!)

So when the Olive Garden asked if I was interested in giving away a gift pack that celebrates the best of their Culinary Institute in Tuscany, I jumped at the chance! They are giving away not one, but four Grand Prize trips to win a Culinary Tour of Italy! That’s right, an eight-day guided tour could be yours just for entering on their site. Even if you’re not a Grand Prize winner, they’re giving away 500 $25 gift cards.

But I’ll make it even easier on you. They’ve given me a prize pack inspired by Olive Garden’s Culinary Institute in Tuscany to give away to one of my readers. If you follow my meal plan, then you already know that I made the Pollo Rocca chicken pasta dish this week and it was delicious!

Sami's Pollo Rocca

The gift pack includes a Culinary Institute of Tuscany canvas tote, bamboo cutting board, Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil sample, McCormick Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt sample and recipe card for Olive Garden’s Pollo Rocca. (Tote not pictured below).
