If you don’t have all the individual spices, go ahead and sub them for 4 heaping teaspoons of Italian seasoning spice blend. Don't skip the dressing mix though.
How to thicken the drippings:
Strain 3 - 4 cups of cooking liquid, bring to a simmer and stir in a cornstarch slurry (2 tablespoons cornstarch + 2 tablespoons cold water). Continue to simmer until thickened. Add additional slurry as desired.
