9 Copycat Olive Garden Recipes to Make at Home
Come for the pasta, stay for the breadsticks. Olive Garden certainly knows how to keep diners coming back, but that doesn't mean you can't make some of their top recipes at home. Keep reading for 9 copycat Olive Garden recipes you can make at home, from soups to pasta and everything in between.
Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
Arguably their most popular dish, this soup is also an easy-to-make classic for home cooks, especially with this recipe.
Easy Pasta Fagioli
When we said Zuppa Toscana was "arguably" Olive Garden's most popular? This is the argument, right here.
Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
This soup is just a little less famous, but only because gnocchi isn't as well known. Think of it as chicken and dumplings, Italian-style.

Better-Than-Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce
Is it really better? Amanda Bremner certainly thinks so: "Made it for my incredibly picky fiancee who loves the Olive Garden Alfredo. He tasted it and, without seeing the name of the recipe, immediately stated that it's better than Olive Garden and that I should make it more."
Grilled Chicken with Peach Sauce
A more-than-credible take on the classic Peach Moscato Chicken, this one is perfect for warm-weather grilling.
Spinach Alfredo Sauce
"This delicious rich and creamy spinach Alfredo is better than Olive Garden®!" says nbrock_85. "Top with grilled chicken on fettuccine pasta for a complete meal or use as a dip for bread sticks. Add more spinach if you're a spinach lover or leave it out if you're not a fan. I like adding lots of garlic! For a thicker sauce, add more cream cheese."
Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara
Jason gives this recipe 5 stars and raves: "Unbelievable! This is my wife's favorite dish at Olive Garden. She orders it every time and says she can't tell a difference. We wouldn't change a thing and this made so many servings!
Chef John's Zabaglione
This five-ingredient dessert is so simple, and tastes just like the Olive Garden dessert.
