Broccolini has a crisp, thin stem, small florets, and flavor notes of asparagus and broccoli. Here, it’s steamed until tender and then pan-seared for a lightly charred flavor that’s complemented by the rich bacon, the nutty cheese, and the mild heat of ground chile. You can double this recipe, but be sure to sear the Broccolini in four batches.
