taken and adapted slightly from this blog

1 T olive oil
6 cloves garlic minced
4 c. chicken broth
2 c. milk
2 T butter
16 oz pasta
1/2 c. grated parmesan
2 c. chopped chicken
salt and pepper
chopped fresh basil or parsley (optional)

Saute garlic in olive oil for 2 min.  Add broth, milk, butter, pasta, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until noodles are tender.  Stir in Parmesan and chicken and herbs if desired.  Mixture will thicken up.  Add more milk and/or broth during cooking if you need more liquid.
