2 jars of homemade Italian seasoning: one made with basic herbs, and one spiced up with chili pepper flakes and seeds

Italian seasoning with chili pepper flakes

  • Author: Mortadella Head
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6 and 1/2 tablespoons 1x


Italian Seasoning is nothing but a simple pre-made blend of herbs and spices used in the Mediterranean diet. Here’s how to make your own at home!



1 tbsp dried oregano

½ tbsp dried chives

½ tbsp  dried rosemary

1 tbsp dried sage

1 tbsp dried thyme

1 tbsp fine salt

1 tsp dried Calabrian chili peppers seeds

1 tbsp dried Calabrian chili pepper flakes


1) Mix all the herbs and spices together;

2) store in a sterilized jar away from light and humidity, and use to taste.

You can adjust the amount of each ingredient except salt depending on your personal taste.


You can add your favorite herbs and spices and adjust their ratio, except for salt. This recipe card automatically multiplies the amount of ingredients x2 or x3, but you don’t actually need to add more than a tablespoon of salt even if you use more spices.

If you’re using fresh herbs, consider they’ll need at least 1 hour to be properly dried (6 hours for chili peppers).
