NEAL’S ASPARAGUS posted by Lauren Spalding

This is my Mom’s go-to side! I have seen her cook this a lot and she loves it as does everyone she cooks it for. It is simple, healthy, delicious and a very pretty presentation. Another nice thing about it is it goes well with any type of  meat: fish, steak, pork or chicken. One thing my Mom has taught me is to cook simple things that look nice! This side is one to impress and so healthy and good!


bunch of fresh asparagus

bell peppers in red, orange and yellow

purple onion, sliced into rings

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste.

Rinse asparagus and snap tough ends off each stalk. In a large glass baking dish, line up stalks in rows like soldiers. Place strips of red, eyllow or orange bell peppers in between each asparagus soldier. Arrange purple onion rings over soldiers and pepper strips.  Drizzle olive oil over all; then sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 8 minutes until tender-crisp.
