  • Add 2 tablespoons water to a skillet.  Heat to medium high and add the mushrooms and start sautéing.  Turn down the heat.  Natural moisture will release form the mushrooms as they sauté.

  • Add the remaining 8 ingredients.  Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add all the veggies from the skillet into the saucepan along with the tomato sauce.  Heat through and cook to the thickness that you like.  It may already be ready.  Add the black olives and heat through.
  • Serve now or let cool and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Notes

Alternately:  Instead of making the pizza sauce you can use a 14 ounce jar of your favorite pizza sauce and save a little time.
