Bring 4-6 quarts of water with ½ tablespoon salt to a boil in a large stockpot. Add pasta and return to a rapid boil. Cook uncovered stirring occasionally until pasta is al dente, about 7 minutes.
While pasta is cooking, make the pesto. Pulse basil, pine nuts, garlic and cheese in a food processor until chopped. Stream in the olive oil while the food processor is on, making sure to scrape down the sides to get any extra. Season with a punch of salt and pepper to taste.
Drain pasta well and toss with pesto. Garnish with more Parmesan cheese and serve.
