Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli florets and cook until bright green and just tender, about 3 minutes. Remove broccoli with a slotted spoon to a colander and run under cold water to stop cooking. Drain and set aside.
Add orzo to same pot of boiling water and cook until al dente, about 9 minutes. While orzo is cooking, mix lemon juice, zest, crushed red pepper and olive oil in a small bowl. Drain orzo well and transfer to a large serving bowl. Add broccoli, peppers, olives and beans. Pour dressing over orzo mixture and toss to coat completely; set aside to cool to room temperature. When pasta has cooled, toss in cheese and basil. Season with salt and pepper.
