Homemade Italian seasoning mix is so easy to make and will bring delicious flavors to so many recipes. When you make your own seasoning mixes you know exactly what is in the mixture. I use Italian seasoning in a lot of different recipes. It is a very versatile seasoning and does not only work in traditional “Italian” themed dishes. I like to watch my salt and sugar intake and many seasonings contain unneeded salt and sugar. This homemade Italian seasoning mix is gluten-free, salt-free and sugar-free.
