Hi Jane Lee, yes,in fact, the fresh leaves would be the preferred way to prepare the sauce. The sauce will come out better tasting, you'll have to experiment to suit your tastes. Thanks for replying! Larry

I have a question about the Italian seasoning? This is the mixed herbs seasoning that you find in supermarkets right? I think it contains sage, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary and some other herbs. Would it be okay to use fresh leaves instead of the packaged ones we buy (such as McCormick?)

Hi there, I actually tried this recipe today. Very easy to do and more importantly it really makes bread sticks very delicious!
