For Sauce: In large saucepan, melt butter or margarine. Stir in flour, basil, salt, and pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Cook and stir one minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in chicken, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and well drained broccoli. Add pasta and toss to coat.

Wonderful recipe! I used fettucine that I broke in thirds and used fresh broccoli that I teamed. Followd the rest of the recipe as written. The chicken I used was leftover smoked chicken so I thinkthat added some nice extra flavor too.
