1. Make the filling: In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over mediumhigh heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.

Bake until heated through and topping is golden brown, about 1 hour 15 minutes for frozen pie (30 minutes for unfrozen pie).
