Broccoli with red pepper butter

This might not look that tempting at first glance, but it really is a good side dish to know. And its a two fer one- 2 of the 5 fruits/veggies you should have a day. I love these flavors together. Try it!

Broccoli with red pepper butter

1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
3 T. butter
1 sweet red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and cut into very thin strips
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Bring a medium sized pot of salted water to boiling. In a non stick skillet, heat 2 T. butter over medium heat. Add red pepper to butter, reduce to medium low; cook stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. In the meantime, cook broccoli in boiling water for 5 minutes. After removing the red pepper butter from the heat, add remaining T. butter, salt and pepper. Place broccoli in a bowl, pour red pepper butter over top. Serve at once.
