Preheat oven to 450 degrees, Toss Broccoli with olive oil, and place on parchment lined sheet pans. 

When oven is to temp, put broccoli in for 10 to 15 min just to caramelize and brown the tips.  Remove from oven and turn oven off, and close the doors. Set Broccoli aside.  

Mix second oil and wine with tomatoes and put on parchment lined sheet pans. Quickly place in ovens and close doors let sit in oven while preparing the rest of the dish, can sit up to an hour to melt the tomatoes. 

Cook the pasta in salted water with the roasted broccoli, until al dente. Once done, drain pasta and broccoli and set aside.  

Melt butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add garlic, and flour and stir until flour has browned, making a roux.
