Method

Combine garlic, basil, salt, pepper, oil and pine nuts in a food processor and blend to a smooth purée, stopping machine once or twice to scrape sides of container with a spatula.

Add cheese and butter, and process for about 15 seconds.

Scrape sides again and process for another few seconds. Do not over-grind or pesto will have very little texture.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add pasta and cook according to the directions on the package.

Drain, saving some water.

Stir 1 tablespoon of the hot, reserved pasta water into the pesto.

Mix the pesto and pasta and serve.
