It's romanesco broccoli, an especially eye-catching member of the brassica family, and when you spot it in the produce department on occasion throughout fall, you don't want to miss your chance to enjoy its slightly sweet, earthy flavor with your pasta, in your stir-fry, or alongside other roast vegetables.
