 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  c             orzo
    1      lb            broccoli -- cut in florets
      1/4  c             olive oil
    3      tbsps         pine nuts
      1/2  tsp           crushed red pepper
      3/4  c             crumbled feta cheese
      3/4  c             black, brine cured olives -- pitted and halved
      1/2  c             freshly grated Parmesan cheese
      1/4  c             chopped fresh basil
 
      Cook orzo in pot of boiling salted water until tender but still
 firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.  Add broccoli and cook until
 crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.
      Meanwhile, heat oil in heavy small skillet over medium heat.  Add
 pine nuts and stir until golden brown, about 3 minutes.  Add crushed red
 pepper and stir until aromatic, about 30 seconds.  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.
