2 Tbsp basil chopped in strips

Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

Bring about 2 cups of water in a boil. Add a pinch of salt. Add pasta, return to boil for about 3 minutes or until pasta is el dente. Remove from heat and drain (don’t rinse). Add 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil to prevent sticking. Place into a glass bowl and cool in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
