25 Make At Home Copycat Olive Garden Recipes

Like most people who go to Olive Garden, you fill up on the breadsticks and salad and have some room left over for your main course. That means you get to bring home leftovers that become lunch for the next day. Still delicious, but not a great as fresh. Here are 25 copycat Olive Garden recipes to try out so your taste buds will be in heaven.

A few things to remember when making copycat recipes and delicious food in general. Buy the next ingredients you can: the fresher, the better in most cases.

If you are making the pesto, buy fresh basil. You can usually find it at most grocery stores, sold in the produce section.

When making alfredo sauce, use freshly shaved parmesan. Look at the ingredients. Make sure it does not have cellulose in it. That is what keeps grated parmesan from sticking together, but it does not melt well. It will have a grainy texture to it.

Bon Appetite!
