450g spaghetti
180ml olive oil
65g grated Parmesan
120ml fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp lemon zest
Handful chopped fresh basil leaves
1) Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the oil, Parmesan, and lemon juice in a large bowl to blend.

2) Drain the pasta, reserving 240ml of the cooking liquid. Toss the pasta with the lemon sauce, and the reserved cooking liquid, adding 60ml at a time as needed to moisten. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with lemon zest and chopped basil.
