Geat for sauces
I have been cooking home made sauces for my children because, one has allergies and my eldest is a vegeterian. It has been a long time since we have used spices and we decided to test out an old family favourite. The italian herb mixture gave a really great taste to Mums "hidden veg" pasta sauce and was a hit with the kids. I even made a batch big enough to freeze.
Easy and delicious
Schwartz have sent me this product for review, but all views are my own. These herbs are the perfect blend of all my favourites. The oregano is the main star and that really comes through but what I love is that I only have to use one jar and I have so many flavours from the other herbs too. Parsley, sage and bay leaves are all such complimentary flavours and lend themselves to so many batch cooked meals that I love to make. I’m already planning on using these in lots of lasagnes, risotto, and stews. They also worked heavenly in my pasta dish I made recently. It just makes cooking easier, tastier and happier.
Well balanced mix of herbs
I love using the Schwartz range of dried herbs in my everyday cooking but I particularly enjoy using their blends like this Italian Herb Seasoning in my baking. It lends itself well to many different dishes & bakes, particularly good in thing's like breads & crackers.
A kitchen cupboard must have
I use this product all the time in so many of my recipes! So tasty, and so handy to have in the kitchen cupboard.
Full of flavour
The Italian Herb Seasoning is amazing with chicken, fully of flavour! I am sure it would be perfect with salmon to bring out the italian style to both meat and fish.
So easy to use!
This was really easy to use. I used it when creating my own pasta sauce, so I mixed it in with passata and some fresh garlic to make a nice sauce. It would also be good to use to season chicken before oven cooking a plain breast. I used to buy herbs separately but this is great as it has all my favourite herbs in one mix!
The best Italian Herb Mix
We recently used the herb mix to make butternut squash and cannellini bean soup. The high-quality seasoning added a wonderful flavour to the soup and the whole house smelled gorgeously after. The seasoning is great to add to shop-bought pasta sauces to add more depth - and a little of it goes a long way! This Italian seasoning does not contain red chilli which means that you get all of the best flavour of the herbs without adding any heat. The bottle is also very user-friendly as the lid opens and shuts smoothly preventing any spills in the cupboard. Reasonably priced as well. We always rely on Schwartz for their bottled seasonings.
Full of flavour, easy to be inspired
I used the Italian herbs to create a new recipe of herbed cheese straws using some puff pastry, the herbs were great quality and loved the modern design bottle. I have noticed the advert on TV that Schwarz has launched with some exciting new suggestions for using their products in new ways. The flavour was great and I have been able to find lots of ideas on the website to try with this product so am looking forward to getting in the kitchen more.
What more do you need?!
I've always loved and used Shwartz herbs and seasonings and this one is one of my favourites to use. Extremely versatile, can be used in lots of different types of dishes and gives each dish a delicious little something extra. I've most recently used this as one of the ingredients of an Italian Veggie Pizza I made and it finishes the pizza off perfectly. Perfect size jar too to fit amongst my large collection of herbs and spices. A great addition to everyone's kitchen cupboards. Also works incredibly well in lasagne and bolognaise too. An all-round great kitchen staple, good quality product and very well priced too.
Excellent Italian Herbs
These herbs are a brilliant way to flavour any Mediterranean dish. You get the great herb smell as soon as you open the lid. Perfect rubber sealant to keep the herbs fresh yet not too tight. The balance of herbs includes oregano, thyme, basil, parsley, sage, bay leaves and black pepper. The seasoning is versatile and I used it in some meatballs to give them a lot more flavour. Cooked or raw the dry herb seasoning can be used to add some texture and taste to salads. I garnished a Caprese salad with it and that was great too. I love how this seasoning has not got chillies either making the flavours of the actual herbs more intense.
