- Lightly spray a non-stick pan with olive oil. Saute onions, mushrooms, garlic, italian seasoning together on medium high heat until onions are soft. Add water by small spoonful as needed to keep onions from burning. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

- Allow to simmer together for 5 minutes or so. Add the rest of the seasonings and taste for salt.
