Easy Veggie Side

So lately, the posts are just quickies - but whatever works, right?  

I was making kind of a bland chicken/rice/veg dinner for the recovering sickie.  I needed something different for the veg side, and I needed it quick.  Here's what I came up with (and believe it or not, the kids ATE it):

Quick Roasted Veggies

1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
1/2 any kind of onion, sliced thin
1-2 crowns of broccoli, sliced thin (leave the stems on)
a handful of asparagus stalks, trimmed
a handful of carrots, sliced thin lengthwise
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Throw all of your veggies in a bowl (or skip it and just mix it up on the baking sheet), drizzle with a little EVOO, sprinkle with some salt & pepper, and toss to coat.  Spread the veggies on a baking sheet. Roast the veggies, turning every 10 minutes or so, until they start to take on some nice color and soften, maybe about 30-40 minutes, or if you need to fast forward things a bit, throw the oven into Broil mode, and broil, turning the veggies every 5 minutes or so, for about 15-20 minutes (that's what I did).  Yum.
