I use a lot of Italian seasoning and I bet you do too. The recipes that you can make are countless and if you can make a Homemade Italian Seasoning mix then you are also on your way to saving money.

You see all of the herbs and spices that are used in this recipe and Italian cuisines are probably already in your cupboard and just waiting to be used more often.

There's an Italian seasoning packet on the shelves in the grocery store. I think you know the section I mean.

But do you know that those packets only hold about 2 tablespoons of the herb mix and the price is pretty darn expensive?

Don't be intimidated about making your own herb and seasoning mixes because it is really easy. You can keep the mixes in old jars that you've already collected or buy one of the many glass jar sets that are out there.

Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!

When I first put on this recipe it was 2015. I also had a slightly different recipe that included marjoram and sage and I left out the parsley.

Well, I don't want to omit that Italian seasoning recipe because it also has great Italian flavors. I like to use this older recipe the most with recipes that use red sauces and plant based meats.

Here is that recipe and the original photos. I hope you get to make both of these mixes and have fun with them.
