My Go-To Italian Spice Blend
This simple and easy spice blend can be used in any Italian recipe that calls for an Italian blend. I use it in my marinara sauce and the Beefless Stew recipe from Straight Up Food by Cathy Fisher.
Mortar and Pestle
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
Optional: Mix a double batch and store in a recycled glass spice jar that once contained one of the spices above.
Optional: Put all of the herbs into a small mortar and pestle and crush to release the flavor.
