Sauteed Romanesco Broccoli with Cheese Ravioli

Romanesco Broccoli is a delicious and nutritious veggie with a nutty flavor.  Sauteeing this unusual veggie in olive oil and garlic which we grew in The Giving Garden for the Great Veggie Adventure made a delightful meal. Romanesco is a seasonal item that is available during the fall (September - October) or you could grow some yourself in your garden.
