Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Pass is back for the sixth year, but this time there's an upgrade.

The restaurant is giving 50 pasta lovers the chance to buy a $500 lifetime pasta pass.

The original Never Ending Pasta Pass cost $100 and allowed guests to get nine weeks of unlimited pasta and sauces from Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Bowl. The upgraded pass will give guests the same benefits for a lifetime.

The passes will officially go on sale Thursday at 2 p.m. for only 30 minutes. The waiting room will open at 1:55 p.m.

Olive Garden is selling 24,000 Pasta Passes this year. To get the lifetime pass, you have to purchase a traditional pass and opt-in to buy the lifetime upgrade.

The first 50 people to opt-in will be upgraded. The lucky 50 will have 48 hours to pay the additional $400 to secure the pass for a lifetime of pasta.
