In a large skillet, gently warm some chopped garlic in olive oil while you cook a pot of pasta. When the garlic turns pale gold, pour in a splash of white wine and about ¾ cup chicken broth and let it cook down. When the pasta is almost done, drain and transfer to the skillet. Cook another minute, then add 1 or 2 bunches of watercress and cook just until it wilts. Top with lots of grated Parmesan and black pepper.
