In large pot, boil water and cook pasta noodles for half time called for on instructions. Drain noodles and quickly run noodles under cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
Over medium heat, melt butter in a saucepan. Add mushrooms and onions to saucepan and sauté in butter until soft and aromatic.
Gradually pour in 2 cups of milk into saucepan, and then add garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to boil. While the mixture boils, mix the chicken broth and cornstarch in a bowl. When mixture in saucepan begins to boil, add chicken broth/cornstarch mixture to pan and whisk to combine. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, allowing to thicken. Remove from stovetop and set aside.
