  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir chicken broth, lemon juice, oregano, basil, and garlic into the butter. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low; cook until thickened to your desired texture, 5 to 7 minutes
  3. Season sauce with salt and pepper. Stir cooked pasta into the butter sauce to coat.

The only changes I made to this was to add some capers (I added them while the butter melted) and about doubled the herbs. I then served it with sliced grilled Cajun chicken on top and sprinkled...
