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 in the homes of any of my Italian American wife's family. To me the most important flavor is oregano.
