Heat a large skillet over medium-high with 2 tbsp. of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, mushrooms and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms have reduced in size and released their moisture.

Wash and remove the stem and seeds from the bell pepper. Slice into 1/4 inch strips. Add to the skillet, and season the vegetables with salt and pepper. Wash and pick the rosemary and oregano from the stems. Finely mince or tear. Reduce heat to medium and add the white wine to deglaze the pan. Let it cook for about 30 seconds.
