Sauté the vegetables.  Bring a large skillet or pan to medium heat.  Once hot, add the red onion, bell pepper, and asparagus.  Cook for 2-3 minutes.  Then, add the peas, garlic, snow peas, cherry tomatoes, and broccoli.  Cook for 4-5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Then remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.  Bring the pan back to heat.
