  • Gather the ingredients.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. For one pound of pasta, you should use 4 to 5 quarts of water. Add salt.

  • Add the linguine or spaghetti and stir. Turn on the timer to 2 minutes less than the package directions state. You don’t want to overcook the pasta, and it’s best to start testing the pasta before it’s done.

  • When the timer goes off, taste a strand. It should be tender, but not mushy, with some resistance in the center.

  • Remove 1/3 cup of pasta water and set aside.

  • Drain the pasta into a colander placed in the sink.

  • Return the pasta to the hot pot.

  • Add butter, parsley, and basil, and toss with tongs. Add some of the pasta cooking water if you think it necessary.

  • Toss over low heat for a minute or two, and sprinkle with cheese.

  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
