Here's a great little hidden fare from Los Angeles to Rome for $767 round-trip, including all taxes, on Aeroflot. And yes, that does connect in Moscow. We were able to find seats departing October 5, returning October 12, as seen by the screen shot below. As we said, this is a hidden fare, so a little clicking around Hotwire's flexible search calendar will reveal the lower fare.
