Add 1 tablespoon garlic powder and Italian seasonings to cover. Mix well. Spice add chili flakes and or black pepper. Spread on a cookie sheet. Roast at 325 for 30 min checking to be sure they dont burn. Stir and continue checking adding additional 5 min until they reach doneness you want. The darker roasted the chewier result. You want to.
