Directions:
1. Bring water to boil. Add salt and then add the pasta when the water boils again. Use a wooden fork or spoon to stir pasta until all strands are under water. Boil rapidly until done to taste; we like it tender but not mushy.
2. Stir 2 tablespoons of hot pasta water and the heavy cream into the pesto. Drain the pasta in a colander and return it to the hot pan. Stir in the pesto and toss well to combine.
3. Serve immediately on warm plates. More freshly ground pepper is welcome, but additional cheese is not really necessary.
