Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream is putting a wintertime spin on comfort food over the next month with its Pasta Palooza promotion. From January 17 to February 28, the Midwest chain will offer promotional pricing on single and party-sized oven-baked pastas. Fans will also have the chance to turn any Happy Joe’s signature pizza into a gourmet pasta dish or create their own.

During Pasta Palooza, guests can choose from any of Happy Joe’s single oven-baked pastas, such as the oven-baked spaghetti and fan-favorite taco pasta. They can also create their own pasta masterpiece and enjoy two slices of garlic toast for just $6.99.

The family-friendly $34.99 party pasta deal feeds eight to 10 people and comes with 10 slices of garlic toast. In addition, Happy Joe’s is giving $5 off to all guests who download the Happy Joe’s app.

“We’re excited to celebrate Pasta Palooza and feature our delicious oven-baked selection,” said Tom Sacco, Happy Joe’s CEO, president and chief happiness officer. “Whether someone wants to turn their favorite Happy Joe’s pizza into a pasta—like our legendary Taco Joe—or tap into their creative side with a customized order, there’s a pasta for everyone during Pasta Palooza!”

Happy Joe’s, founded in Davenport, Iowa in 1972 by the late Joe Whitty, is gearing up for a burst of international growth after announcing last fall that Master Franchisee Ahmed Elbatran will lead a group developing or sub-franchising at least 25 Happy Joe’s locations in Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates over the next 10 years. Sacco said signing that deal “was among the most exciting moments in our brand’s history.”
