I have a bunch of fresh oregano and am looking for ideas as to how to use it up. Italian seems kind of obvious, but what other things going well with oregano? Thanks!

    Tuscan Style Steak........Grilled, sprinkled with fresh hand crushed oregano, fresh squeezed lemons and olive oil.

      Greek!! You can marinate lamb of any stripe in a mixture of Olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest and a big handful of that chopped oregano, and you'll never look back.
      Other than that, Chicken al Mattone (under a brick to cook) with a handful of sprigs laid atop, and plenty of garlic.

        Duh, of course! All of these things sound so obvious once I read them, so thanks for getting my mind out of its rut :)
