Italian Seasoning Mix

Seasoning mixes are a great way to add flavor to your recipe quickly.  Unfortunately, many premixed spices contain gluten, MSG, and other additives.  Making your own mix keeps your spices “clean” as well as saves you money.  I buy my herbs in bulk from Sam’s and Costco. 

This is my favorite Italian Seasoning mix.  I found it on back in the old days when it was called Recipezaar.  I use it in Spaghetti Zucchini Boats and Italian Sausage and Summer Squash Skillet.



  • 3Tbsp Dried Basil
  • 3 Tbsp Dried Oregano
  • 3 Tbsp Dried Parsley
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 tsp Dried Rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes



  1. Measure all ingredients into a small container with an air tight lid. 
  2. Close the lid and shake well.
