1 small (1/2 cup) onion, chopped

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1 (8-ounce) package (2 cups) sliced fresh mushrooms

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 2 tablespoons in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat until sizzling. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3-4 minutes or until onions just begin to soften. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook 4-5 minutes or until mushrooms are softened. Remove mixture from saucepan; keep warm.
