- When the water boils for the pasta, place the cut up broccoli in the water for about 1 minute.
- Next, strain out into a colander.
- Cook the pasta in the same water the broccoli was in.
- It adds to the flavor of the finished dish.
- Put honey, vinegars, oil, garlic cloves, basil leaves, yogurt, spinach, water and a pinch of salt and pepper into the blender.
- Blend on high to and make the dressing.
- When the orzo is finished, run the pasta under cold water to stop the cooking.
