You can make your own Olive Garden dinner at home for much less! And aren’t these the best breadsticks ever?!! Give me the soup and salad combo and I’m content! Although, I’ve been eliminating gluten lately so I would have to skip the breadsticks. Maybe I’ll make a version of gluten-free so I can enjoy them at home. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
