  • Finely ground: For a finely blended powder, process them in a spice grinder or grind with a mortar and pestle.

  1. Hi, is it possible to cut up lasagna into pieces after assembly? Or cut it after it’s frozen? Hoping to make this a piece by piece meal prep.

  2. Wow I love some of your recipes, looking forward to trying them, Especially Easy Goulash. Thank you for introducing yourself and sharing some of your recipes.

  3. Wanting to make Italian beef sandwiches for the family but I don’t like buying packets at the store due to added salt. I grow my own herbs and have all these dried from last fall’s harvest.
    Thank you for this post, helps a ton with making it healthy for my family.

  4. So I’m looking at my EMPTY bottle of McCormick Italian seasoning and it has in addition to what you put: Savory and Sage. Just curious, why you left those two out?

    I’ve seen some pretty strange additions in recipes on net like someone added Cilantro, chili powder, red pepper, and garlic. The later is way off. Yours is closest to what I was looking for. But did not know how much sage or savory to add or would be just as good with out it. Thank you very much.
