I use the kind that comes in a shaker. If you don't like the taste of it, you can take that out of the recipe. Sometimes I do as well. And brand will do though.

This recipe was really good as well. What brand of Italian seasoning do you use? That was the one thing my wife thought tasted a little weird.

Such an easy and inexpensive recipe! The part about warming the leftover tomato sauce and spooning it over the slices sounds so good!
