Welp, it's official, the Eagles and the Patriots are going to the Super Bowl. Personally, I'm from Cleveland, so I don't (actually never) have a dog in the race. So this year, I'm team Olive Garden, because they're taking a classic Italian pasta and making it into nachos. Yes, Olive Garden's Loaded Pasta Chips are hitting the menu in honor of the Super Bowl.

WTF Are Loaded Pasta Chips?

Loaded Pasta Chips are lightly fried pieces of lasagna pasta (aka the chips), topped with Italian cheeses, meat sauce with chicken, meatballs, and sausage, cherry peppers, and an Alfredo sauce drizzle. I'll probably take mine with extra drizzle.

The chain’s Loaded Pasta Chips have just arrived at stores nationwide in time for Super Bowl Sunday but will stick around for a couple of months, so don't feel like you have to swap your own signature nacho recipe this weekend if you don't want to.

When You Can Get Them

The chips are available on the menu from Jan. 29 through Apr. 1. So on Super Bowl Sunday, in between cheering on your favorite team, laughing at the high budget commercials, and live tweeting Justin Timberlake's much-anticipated halftime performance, you can snack on these chips.

You Can Actually Make Them Yourself

For those throwing watch parties for the big game, Olive Garden is sharing its hack to make pasta chips at home. The hack uses lasagna noodles, lightly fried and tossed in garlic salt – simply top with favorite Italian toppings.

Loaded Pasta Chips will be available at Olive Garden restaurants until April 1. I’ve included high-res images , and you can check out a step-by-step for the hack below.

If you're more of the house party type and don't see yourself wooping it up at an Olive Garden during the game, you have two options. You can either order them for take out with a side of delicious breadsticks, or you can make your own at home.

The Biggest Mistake You Can Make When Cooking Pasta

  The Biggest Mistake You Can Make When Cooking Pasta To a hungry cook in a hurry, no quick-and-easy meal is quite like plain, old pasta. Sure, the logic makes sense at first. Using a smaller pot means you need less water, which will speed up the boiling process. But this little mistake could make a big difference for your plate of pasta, chefs say. (That’s not the only kitchen mistake you’re probably making, either.

Making your own at home is actually pretty easy. Olive Garden's recipe for Loaded Pasta Chips includes first cutting lasagna noodles into three equal pieces. Next, heat up some olive oil in a pan, and once its hot, gradually toss in your pasta. Lightly fry those pieces up. Next, transfer the fried "chips" to a basket and let the excess oil drain for a minute. If you don't have a basket, I would suggest laying them out on paper towels. Then, toss the pasta chips with garlic salt, and coat with whatever toppings you like, or the ones mentioned above. Take a photo for the 'gram (because duh) and eat up.

So enjoy these Loaded Pasta Chips with the 20-ish sides of dip your friends make. No matter how you feel about each team, Super Bowl Sunday is always a good time, and the snack game is top notch.

Tasting, tweaking, and tasting again is key, as is having a little lineup of extras you can toss in to bring that special something. Here are my favorite things to add to tomato sauce when it needs a little rounding out, whether I’m starting from scratch or jazzing up a store-bought jar:If you’re missing umamiAdd some anchovy paste, fish sauce, or parmesan cheese. (You can also add a parm rind, but try to add it early on.) All three of these bring that savory flavor your mouth craves. Tomato paste can also be added, but you need to brown in first.
