  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 1/2 cup white wine (such as Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay)
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional)
