2. add garlic and cook for about 1 minute
3. add broth and pasta, give it a stir and bring to a boil.  cook uncovered until pasta is tender and a majority of the liquid has evaporated (about 15 minutes)
4. add tomatoes and a some of the parmesan cheese, cook for another 2 minutes or until the tomaotes have just started to get a tender.
5. remove from heat, plate, garnish with a little fresh basil and parmesan cheese and serve.

next time I will use knorr tomato bouillon instead of the chicken stock....the only issue with that is that the sodium level will increase greatly with the bouillon.
