  1. Heat olive in a medium pan over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add butter and stir constantly until melted. Pour in chicken broth; add pepper and salt. Bring to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Add more chicken broth if pasta starts to stick to the pan.
  2. Stir Parmesan cheese, cream, and parsley into the pasta and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately.

Took quite a bit of time for the sauce to thicken, but excellent flavor.

I added shrimp, lemon juice and the rind of a lemon… Always good choices in my mind! I think it was much more flavourful as a result.

My family’s current favorite dish I’ve made. I used the entire standard chicken broth box & added some cream cheese to make it a little more creamy. Also served with precooked small shrimp. I wo...
