I am really bummed with Olive Garden and I can’t hide it any more. For years I have been a loyal customer. Our family has celebrated milestones and created memories around the soft, scrumptious bread sticks and Italian ambiance. In fact, for two of my son’s births my husband bought me an entire chocolate lasagna cake to celebrate. That is where my love turned cold though. They suddenly and without warning, omitted chocolate lasagna from their menu! This occurred about two years ago, I can even remember where I was and the time of year when the waiter delivered the dreaded news. Things have not been the same since! I truly LOVED chocolate lasagna (clearly a little too much). Lol. Anyway, I really haven’t gotten over it but once in a great while we still go back. I enjoy the breadsticks and they make the best chicken Caesar salad I have ever had. Well, make that… DID. On vacation I went to order my one nugget of joy on the Olive Garden menu and it was GONE! Ahhhh, not again! I couldn’t believe it! I know it’s a pasta place so salad isn’t top priority but sheesh, my heart was already broken once! That is so frustrating. Whether it’s makeup or a brand you really love, it stinks when it’s gone. Anyway, I really need to sit down and e-mail someone at Olive Garden about this distressing turn of events. I was bound and determined when the chocolate lasagna fiasco happened but I just never did. Thankfully, there are some great copycat sites online and they have the recipe posted for me to re-create the dessert. Yes! Chocolate Lasagna will live on!:)
