Olive Garden Pasta Alfredo

Made this last night and it was very good. However if you are wanting a low fat meal don't eat this!
This recipe was adapted from Budged Saavy Diva.

Spaghetti or fettuccine noodles
butter, 1 stick
garlic, 2 cloves minced
heavy whipping cream, 1 pint
Parmesan cheese, 1 cup
cream cheese, 3-4 ounces
salt and pepper to taste
cooked broccoli florets, optional

Cook pasta according to box instructions. 
In a sauce pan, melt butter. Once the butter is melted add the garlic. 
After a few minutes you can add the whipping cream and cream cheese. Cook until cream cheese is melted. Make sure you do not boil or it will burn. 
Add the Parmesan cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
Add the the broccoli.
Pour sauce over cooked noodles. Also you could sprinkle more Parmesan on top. Enjoy!!!!
