Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 min 30 seconds, stirring as it cooks.
Add the chicken broth.
Add in the room temperature milk/cream. If it's still chilled, temper it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Add the pasta. If the noodles are too long for the pan it will begin to bend as it heats and will then fit into the pan. Kitchen tongs help with this.
Let the pasta simmer for 4-5 minutes. Stir it every 30 seconds or so. Remove from the heat.
Gradually sprinkle in the Parmesan cheese, stirring as you do so, until smooth and well-combined. Note: The sauce will be thin at first but will thicken nicely upon standing. The pasta will continue to absorb more of the sauce as well.
