2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Bring large pot of water to boil. Add broccoli and pasta to boiling water and cook according to package directions. In large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 1 minute. Sprinkle in flour then whisk to incorporate and cook for 1 additional minute. Slowly whisk in chicken broth, then milk. Whisk in Greek yogurt, salt and pepper, then turn the heat down to low and let the mixture simmer until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Turn the heat off and stir in Parmesan cheese.
