9 oz. fettuccine (I used Bertolli—the fresh kind found in the refrigerated section)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups seafood stock
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup chopped broccoli florets
salt + pepper to taste
chopped parsley for garnish

Remove the lid and allow to cook for another 8-9 minutes until the liquid has mostly evaporated/absorbed into the noodles and broccoli. Toss in the cheese during this last 8-9 minutes of cooking.
