In Italian, “mia” means “my,” so at America’s favorite Italian restaurant, “Lasagna Mia” means that you can have your square of lasagna however the heck you want it.

Last week, Olive Garden launched an advertising blitz announcing its brilliant new menu offering: a create-your-own lasagna option that lets you pick your favorite sauces and toppings. Mamma mia, think of all the possibilities.

Lovers of lasagna layers start with the casual restaurant’s new Four Cheese Lasagna, which is, as advertised, baked with a blend of four Italian cheeses. They then choose between four different sauces—meat sauce, marinara, Alfredo or “Five Cheese Marinara”—to get slathered on top before picking one of six toppings, including garden vegetables, cheese ravioli, mini meatballs, “Chicken Fritta,” grilled chicken or sautéed shrimp.

These mounds of pasta with 24 combinations straight outta’ your dreams, all for a starting price of $12.99. Sadly, if you are a fan of the meatballs, chicken or shrimp, you’ll have to pay a little extra. For a meaty hack, the meat sauce is made with a combination of beef and Italian sausage. Of course, if you like the idea of having your pasta topped with pasta, those raviolis don’t cause any extra, which is objectively awesome.

The Lasagna Mia promotion will be available until July 22nd, so you have over a month to test every single combination and then go back to have your favorite.
