Instructions:

1. First, chop the vegetables into fairly chunky slices.

2. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the onion and peppers. Cook for a few minutes over a medium heat, then add the mushrooms. Continue to cook for five more minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.

3. Divide the vegetables in half and add 1-2 slices of cheese to each half. Turn the heat down fairly low and cover the pan with a lid. Cook for a few minutes, until the cheese has melted.
