Remove mixture from heat. Drain orzo and broccoli. Transfer to large bowl. Pour oil mixture over and toss to coat. Add feta, olives, Parmesan and basil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve. NOTES : Serves 8 as a side dish, 4 as a main dish. Recipe by: Bon Appetit - 9/94 Posted to EAT-L Digest by Fran on Dec 20, 1997

This is a great recipe. I didn't have any fresh basil so I substituted fresh cilantro. I also added a little chopped red bell pepper for color. It got rave reviews from my husband. I will certainly make it again.
