Why buy a spice mixture, when you can make your own? I save empty spice bottles (or buy them at places like World Market). These come in handy when you want to a fast pasta dish, omelet, soup or whatever you can think of! While I think of it, why buy Italian breadcrumbs? Use your food processor to make your own bread crumbs out of stale bread. Even better, season panko crumbs for an extra crunchy texture. Add your homemade Italian seasoning, and there you go!

Ingredients

Equal parts (I use 1 Tbsp of each)
dried thyme
dried basil
dried rosemary
dried oregano
dried marjoram
dried parsley
garlic powder* (optional)
red pepper flakes* (optional)
I prefer to add only fresh garlic, when I am seasoning. I also prefer to add my own red pepper flakes so that I can control how much heat I want in a dish.

Directions

Mix all the dried herbs and spices together. Store in an air-tight container. Keeps for 6 months. Shake the bottle before using, to evenly distribute the flavors.
