• 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
• 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon dried oregano
• 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
• 1 tablespoon dried basil
• 1 tablespoon dried parsley
• 1 tablespoon garlic powder
• 1 tablespoon minced garlic
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1. Using a spice or coffee grinder, grind together red and black peppers, dried herbs, garlic powder,
minced garlic, and salt.
