Tuscany

This is an excellent Italian herb blend recipe we use for pizza, meatballs, red sauces, and anything you want to add an Italian flair to. It takes me back to ice skating as a boy and buying pizza by the slice and to dinner the homes of any of my Italian American wife's family. To me the most important flavor is oregano.

Course. Sauces and Condiments.

Cuisine. Italian.

Makes. About 1/3 cup

Takes. 10 minutes.

Ingredients

4 tablespoons crushed dried oregano leaves

4 tablespoons crushed, dried basil leaves

2 tablespoons garlic powder

1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Optional additions. 1 part dried rosemary leaves (crush them so they don't stab you); 1 part dried marjoram; 1/2 part crushed red pepper flakes or chipotle.

Method

Just mix them together in a jar and shake before using.
