Cook the pasta in a large size pot filled with salted water until al dente.  Remove from the heat and drain in a colander.  DO NOT rinse the pasta.  Return the pasta to the pot and place a lid on the pot to keep warm.  In a medium size sauté pan melt 3 tablespoons of butter over a medium heat for 1 minute.  Add the broccoli and cook for 5 minutes until the broccoli is crisp and tender.  In a medium size saucepan add the whipping cream and 1/4 cup of butter.  Stir in the Parmesan cheese. Cook over a medium low heat for 6 minutes. Stir frequently.  Remove from the heat and pour the Parmesan sauce over the pasta.  Add the broccoli, cooked chicken, bacon and garlic powder.  Gently stir until well mixed.  Transfer into a serving bowl.  Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese if you like.  Serves 6
