Instructions
  1. In a Large Bowl, whisk the oil, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, ¾ teaspoon of salt, and ½ teaspoon of pepper to blend.
  2. Set the lemon sauce aside. (The sauce can be made up to 8 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before using.)
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  4. Add the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  5. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Add the spaghetti to the lemon sauce, and toss with the basil and lemon zest.
  6. Toss the pasta with enough reserved cooking liquid, ¼ cup at a time, to moisten. Season the pasta with more salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Transfer to bowls and serve.
