*1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
*few dashes of salt + 1/4 teaspoon

Cook ground beef and onion, with a few dashes of salt, over medium heat until no longer pink.  During the last minute of cooking, add the garlic.

Stir in the corn, tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, basil, oregano, black pepper, and 1/4 tsp of salt.  Cover and simmer over medium-medium/low heat for 10 minutes or until zucchini is tender.
