Boil the pasta to your specifications. 10 minutes of boiling is a safe time for pasta if you are not sure, take a bite of the pasta, if it gives a slight resistance between the teeth but is not crunchy or hard then it is al dente and ready
While the pasta is cooking sauté the garlic in the oil for about a minute, then add the chicken and sauté for five minutes. Add the broccoli and sauté for an additional 10 minutes until softened
Add the broth and the cream cheese (or cottage cheese). Add the tomatoes and cook for an additional minute or two
Drain the pasta and mix it with the chicken and vegetables. Add the parmesan and serve.
You can cook double the pasta if cooking for a friend and use half of the pasta for a quick lunchtime salad.
