Now that we are in the full swing of summer, it’s time for easy recipes that can be made on the grill. This recipe for Cast Iron Asparagus and Peppers is perfect because it can be made on the grill or in the oven. It’s also very good for you, veggies and olive oil with just a bit of seasoning will give you a ton of flavor that you will love! I used my 10 inch cast iron skillet, see here. I love using this because it works just as well as my 12 inch but can handle stuff like this with ease. This can cook while you have your main course cooking and you don’t need to worry about it. The cast iron helps everything roast evenly. Cast Iron Asparagus and Peppers is a perfect easy summer side for your hot and relaxing nights.
