name my vegetable, and tell me how to cook it

Hi 'hounds,

I'm currently in Rome, Italy (watch for my posts on the Italy board!) and I just went to the market with my fiance. He became mesmorized by a very strange looking vegetable - imagine a head of cauliflower, but bright green, and instead of florets it has geometrical pyramids sticking off of it, made of smaller pyramid-ic florets growing in a spiral. It's currently in season here, so we bought one, and I'm at a loss. I was hoping my Marcella would mention it, but she doesn't include it (probably thinking, rightly, that it's rather uncommon in the US!). Either the English or Italian name would be appreciated!

Thank you very much!
