Trim tough ends from broccolini. In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook broccolini until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Fill bowl with ice water; drain broccolini and plunge into ice water to cool completely. Drain and pat dry. (Make-ahead: Wrap in towel; refrigerate in plastic bag for up to 24 hours.)

With side of chef's knife, smash garlic. In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook garlic until fragrant and just golden, about 1 minute. With slotted spoon, discard garlic. Add broccolini, salt and pepper to pan; cook, stirring, until hot, about 3 minutes.
