Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then add noodles and cook according to directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large pot (I use a small-ish stockpot), melt the butter and add the garlic cloves, cooking for about 30 seconds. Pour in the half-and-half and let melt together, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper. Spoon out the garlic and discard.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese and stir until smooth.
