Steam the broccoli over a double boiler until it just starts to turn bright green; then remove from heat. If you’re short on time, you can also use frozen and defrosted broccoli florets.

Next, heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet, then add the garlic and broccoli. Sauté until the garlic starts to release its’ smell; then add the cooked pasta, cheese and chicken broth and mix well.
