This a healthy meal that is full of flavor. It is nice as a side dish or a stand alone meal.



Bring the chicken broth to a boil over high heat. Add the orzo and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well, pour the orzo into a bowl, toss with the butter, and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cook until the garlic softens and the aroma mellows, about 2 minutes. Stir in the basil, thyme, red pepper flakes. and pine nuts. Cook, while stirring, until the pine nuts have toasted to a light golden brown.


Stir the pine nut mixture into the orzo. Add olives, capers, feta cheese, spinach, lemon juice; toss and serve. Can be served either warm or cold but it is better the next day after the flavored have had time to blend together.
