What the heck is Broccolini?

That was my initial reaction when I was reading a recent nutrition article online. Essentially, broccolini is a mix between Chinese kale and broccoli. Introduced to the United States in 1998 by Mann Packing Company, broccolini is loaded with Vitamins A & C. It's been in the U.S. for 11 years and I haven't tried it. Looks like I have another new food to try. If you've had it, let me know how it was and how you cooked it. I've read 12-15 minutes @ 450 degrees on a cookie sheet tossed with a little lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil works best.
