Ingredients:
-1 lb pasta (I used penne, but you can use any kind)
-1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet.   Add chicken and cook until nice and brown on all sides.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 more seconds.
Stir in the cream and broth.  Cook until slightly thickened and chicken is cooked through.  Stir in the Gorgonzola, sage, salt and pepper.  Cook until cheese is all melted.
Drain the pasta and add to the skillet.  Stir to coat.  Enjoy!
