An Italian version of the traditional party mix. For those who aren't familiar with Italian seasoning it's a blend of several herbs that can include basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, and thyme. It can be found with the other spices in the supermarket. Recipe note: Normally I prefer to use fresh parmesan cheese but in this recipe you'll need to use the dry stuff that comes in the green can.
