Drop the pasta in salted boiling water.

While the pasta is cooking, chop the basil finely (you can also tear it by hand as small you can or use a mortar and pestle to prevent oxidation)

Mix basil with the zest, EV olive oil, lemon juice and cheese and make a paste.

Once the pasta is al dente toss with the dressing and serve immediately with an extra sprinkle of cheese on top and a drizzle of EV olive oil.
