  • In a large fry pan saute the minced garlic in the butter.
  • At the same time in a large pot, begin boiling water for the noodles, add the noodles once it begins to boil and cook until noodles are soft. Drain water and reserve noodles for later.
  • When garlic begins to turn golden add the chicken broth, whipping cream, chopped zucchini, dried basil, salt and pepper and bring contents to a boil. Continue boiling until zucchini is cooked (just a few minutes).
  • Remove the fry pan from heat and stir in the noodles and parmesan cheese until thoroughly mixed, then gently stir in the cherry tomatoes. Garnish with sliced fresh basil.
