Chicken and Pasta with Creamy Basil Sauce

I found this recipe my mom gave me some time ago and finally gave it a try. (Thanks, Mom) It was a light alfredo type sauce with a great basil flavor and we enjoyed it. I cut this recipe in half and it was plenty for us.
1 pkg. (12 oz) bow tie noodles
1 Tbsp. butter
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut up
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup milk
3 oz. cream cheese
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook pasta. In large skillet over medium heat, melt butter, sprinkle chicken with garlic salt. Cook chicken until done.

Add milk and heat to a boiling. Stir in cream cheese and basil. Reduce heat, stirring constantly until cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat, stir in parmesan cheese.

Toss hot pasta and sauce. Serve.
