I’ve mentioned before my love of Italian food that started when I married my husband (his family is originally from Sicily) and I started learning to make his favorite dishes.
Our transition to a grain free diet necessitated some substitutions and I started making recipes like Chicken Cacciatore with Cabbage Noodles, Meatza Crustless Pizza, One-Pan Vegetable Spaghetti, Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken Parmesan, Zucchini Lasagna and others.
Homemade Italian Seasoning
I found myself buying jar after jar or organic Italian Seasoning and it was getting expensive. Plus, I was having to buy a tiny new jar every couple of weeks because we went through it so quickly.
I was already ordering teas and lotion ingredients in bulk from Mountain Rose Herbs so I decided to start ordering my Italian Seasoning ingredients there as well. I store this and all of my homemade herbal blends in half pint jars with marked lids for easy use and they stack in the cabinet for easy storage.
- Basil leaf
- Marjoram Leaf
- Oregano leaf
- Rosemary Leaf
- Thyme Leaf
- Garlic Powder (optional, especially if you cook with fresh garlic)
Homemade Italian Seasoning Recipe
Homemade Italian Seasoning with dried herbs like basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, thyme and garlic is a cost effective alternative to store bought pre-mixed seasonings.
- 1/2 cup Basil leaf
- 1/2 cup Marjoram Leaf
- 1/2 cup Oregano leaf
- 1/4 cup cut and sifted Rosemary Leaf
- 1/4 cup Thyme Leaf
- 2 tablespoons Garlic Powder (optional, especially if you cook with fresh garlic)
- Place all herbs in a jar and shake well. Great in any Italian recipes such as Eggplant Parmesan, Chicken Parmesan, Meatza, Grain Free Spaghetti, Zucchini Lasagna, etc.
