Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta water; set aside.

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly golden, 2-3 minutes. Add broccoli florets; toss well in garlic oil. Add chicken broth and reserved 1/2 cup pasta water. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook until broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and puree 1 cup of cooked broccoli mixture in a blender; return to pan.

Gradually add pasta, tossing to mix between additions. Stir in garlic powder and cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
