orzo with roasted red peppers asparagus


quick vegan dish i threw together last night... i love orzo pasta simply prepared with margarine, salt and pepper. since i didn't want to eat just that for dinner, i decided to add some veggies that i had on hand as well. i used a 12 oz bag of frozen asparagus from trader joes, thawed for 5-6 minutes in the microwave, and then chopped into 1" pieces. trader joe's frozen asparagus tends to become very mushy, very fast, so keep an eye on it in the microwave, and add it to your skillet at the last minute. spices were kind of a mix and match. i use a mix called sandwich sprinkle from penzey's spice company, as well as basil and thyme.
