Roasted Romanesco Broccoli

Romanesco broccoli, a beautiful lime green vegetable with a dense, heavy head covered in spiraling points, is widely grown in Italy and is starting to show up in more farmers' markets here. Unlike its close cousin the cauliflower, it doesn't have a sulfurous taste; instead, its flavor is mild and gently sweet.
