Penne Pasta with Broccoli and Cheese

1/2 Tbsp. basil leaves
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 tsp. Parmesan cheese
In a large pot add water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until done, about 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the broth, basil, black pepper, garlic and broccoli in a large skillet over medium heat bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the broccoli is tender-crisp.
Add the pasta to the broccoli mixture and toss to coat.
Add cheese to the pasta mixture
