Step Three: Mix It All Together, No Serving Dish Required
When the pasta is al dente (tender but not mushy), turn off the heat. The water will have all been absorbed, so there's no need to drain it. Fold in grated Parmesan; because while people may want to add cheese to their own portions, a quarter-cup, or so, stirred into the entire dish gives it a touch of creaminess, and probably eliminates the need for you to add salt. Finally, top the pasta with a few sprigs of fresh basil and enjoy.
