"This is the perfect blend of spices. I used only 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes though, thinking it would be too hot for the kids to enjoy. I also used vegetable oil, as I don't care for the taste of olive oil. We had Pumpernickel & Rye Bread at the time I made this but any bread would be good I think."

"I make up this mix evry time I make an italian dish I need bread to go with. The only I did different was used garlic salt in place of the dried minced garlic and then I omitted the salt. I also do not add the water to the seaason. I just mix it straight in with the olive oil and serve."
