Italian Seasoning

Ask the Test Kitchen

Some recipes call for Italian seasoning. I have not been able to find it. Can you help me?—E.G., Agawam, MassachusettsItalian seasoning can be found in the spice aisle of most grocery stores. A basic blend might contain marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano and basil. If your grocery store does not carry Italian seasoning, ask the manager if it can be ordered. Or, mix up your own. If you don’t have all the ingredients on your spice shelf, you can blend just a few of them with good results. Try substituting 1/4 teaspoon each of basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano for each teaspoon of Italian seasoning called for in a recipe.
