Homemade Italian seasoning is an easy recipe to mix up for chicken marinades, seasoning veggies & adding to pasta sauces. It’s whole 30, vegan & gluten free!
I’ve been making my own Taco Seasoning for years, but lately I’ve started filling my pantry with all of my favorite seasoning blends.
I love keeping French Onion Dip Mix and Ranch Seasoning Mix on hand to easily make my own dips! I always use homemade Fajita Seasoning and Chili Seasoning to spice up my fajitas and chili recipes. And I always have my own Pumpkin Pie Spice in the pantry during the fall and winter months!
The Pumpkin Pie Spice is a wonderful addition to this Apple Crumble recipe. And Italian seasoning is great for adding to pasta sauces, roasted veggies and lots of authentic Italian recipes.

How do you make Italian seasoning?
Simply combine the following ingredients in a small bowl or mason jar.
- dried basil

How long does it last?
The seasoning will last 6 months stored in a half pint mason jar in the pantry. After 6 months, it’s still safe to use but will lose some of it’s flavor, so I do recommend making a fresh batch after 6 months.

Italian seasoning can be used in traditional Italian recipes like pizza sauce, marinara sauce, meatballs and lasagna. It can also be used to marinate chicken or beef, or toss it with veggies for roasting.
