Olive Garden offers an exclusively pasta-themed menu which can greatly limit the brand in terms of innovative food concepts; however the fast casual eatery is reinventing its presentation by offering several of its famed noodle dishes in a spaghetti pie format. The redesign keeps to the brands pasta-themed chain, while offering diners a new way to experience familiar flavors.
The spaghetti pies are a baked pasta dish that opts for the pasta to be blended with cheese and bacon before it is rolled and cooked in the oven. The pasta hardens slightly to create a firmer noodle dish that is then sliced into wedges and served with different sauces. The baked and cheesy noodle wedges offer an unfamiliar way for consumers to enjoy pasta that experiments with different and unlikely textures.
