Ingredients
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 18 minutes.

1 large red bell pepper
8 ounces whole-grain rotini pasta
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound fresh asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into 2–2 1/2-inch pieces
1 pound cooked chicken breast (skinless and boneless), cut into bite-size pieces

1 – Cut bell pepper into approximately 2 1/2-inch pieces and arrange pieces on a broiler-safe pan. Place in broiler, and broil until flesh is soft and skin has some browning. Remove and let cool. Once cool, cut into strips. Bring at least 2 quarts of water to a boil, add rotini, and cook for about 8–10 minutes. Drain and reserve in a bowl.
