How to Make Italian Seasoning Spice Mix
To make this spice mix, just measure the spices and mix together. I like to grind mind with my mortar and pestle a bit, because the dried rosemary and red pepper flakes are quite a bit bigger than the other spices and I like to break them up just a little bit. You could also pulse it in a spice grinder a couple of times.
Just store in a jar with a lid and use with in a few months.
