1 cup roasted peppers sliced
¼ cup roasted garlic
¼ cup small diced pancetta
1 t chile flakes
1 T extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a sauce pot bring a gallon of heavily salted water to a boil and place the broccolini in making sure to not over crowd the pot. Once broccolini is just cooked but still al dente, remove from the boiling water and place into an ice bath to stop the cooking and to preserve the beautiful green color. In a cold sauté pan, place the pancetta and render the fat over medium heat. Set aside the pancetta. In the same pan over medium/high heat, place olive oil, garlic and chile flakes until garlic starts to crisp. Place peppers and broccolini in the pan and sauté until hot. Add pancetta back to pan. Season with salt and pepper.
