  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, cook for 8 minutes, then stir in broccoli, and cook 3 minutes more. Drain and return to the pot.

  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and stir in the garlic. Cook and stir until the garlic has turned golden-brown, about 3 minutes. Pour in white balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then pour over the drained pasta and broccoli. Stir in the butter, pine nuts, and half of the Parmesan cheese, then pour into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  • Broil in preheated oven until the cheese has crisped and turned golden brown, about 4 minutes.
