Red Pepper Confetti Asparagus
- 2 pounds fresh asparagus
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
- freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place asparagus on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the asparagus in a single layer and to fold over and seal. Place the foil and contents into a rectangular casserole dish. Lay sliced bell pepper over asparagus. Sprinkle the asparagus and bell pepper with olive oil, lemon juice, and dill. Season with pepper. Wrap the foil around the asparagus (snugly but not tightly), and seal tightly by folding the edges together.
- Bake 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Serve immediately.
