If you never tried or heard about Italian seasoning, you have missed a lot. It’s such a wonderful addition to this soup and really takes it to another level.
What is in Italian seasoning
Italian seasoning is a mix from dried herbs like basil, oregano, rosemary, marjoram, and thyme.
There is absolutely no need to make a homemade Italian seasoning. You can find them always at your favorite store.
But if you don’t like it, or maybe one herb isn’t your thing, just make your own.
How to make Italian seasoning
Choose your favorite herbs like basil, oregano, rosemary, marjoram and adjust all the quantities to your own liking. Start with a Tbs each and go from there.
If you’re not a fan of one of these herbs, just leave it out or use a tiny amount for your seasoning.
On the other direction if you’re a big fan of one herb, add more from there you can easily mix your own seasoning mix.
