  • 1 pound linguine, spaghetti or angel hair pasta
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 chicken breasts grilled and cut into strips, optional


  • In a large 5-6 quart skillet or stock pot, heat 2 Tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Add chicken broth, milk, remaining 2 Tablespoons butter, noodles, salt, pepper, and basil. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
