The Olive Garden hasn’t been in Canada for a long time now, and I often find myself stopping in for their delicious bread (omg!) whenever I am cross border shopping. 

Truthfully, I haven’t been cross-border shopping in well over a year and I miss the comforting food found at the Olive Garden. 

Creating my own Olive Garden recipes is a great way to be able to enjoy the delicious Italian food I love so much at home!
