Pasta (pâtes) with garlic-basil (pistou) sauce is light dish, with nuts from the pin parasol giving it a distinctive Provencal texture. You can, of course, vary the amount of garlic to your taste.

Put the pasta on to cook after the sauce is done, so you aren't rushed.

Try different pastas, such as fettuccine verdi.

Recipe (4 servings pasta only; see also Pistou Sauce Recipe.)

400 g spaghetti [spaghetti]
olive oil [huile d'olive]
salt [sel]
pepper [poivre]
pistou sauce (recipe)

When the pasta is done, drain it and put it back in the pot. Put salt, pepper and the pistou sauce on the pasta and mix it in. Sprinkle on the rest of the parmesan and serve.
