1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. In a 9×13 baking dish, mix together the oil, vegetables, salt, basil, and garlic.
3. Cook for about 10 minutes uncovered till the vegetables have softened a bit. Mix in the orzo and cover with water. Cover the pan tightly and bake about 30 minutes or until the orzo is soft. If there is liquid leftover in the pan, that’s fine.
4. Once you remove from oven, uncover and mix. Then cover back up and allow to sit a few minutes until the liquid is more absorbed.
