  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente.  
  2. Meanwhile, heat a small, dry skillet over medium heat and add the pine nuts. Cook, shaking the pan constantly, until the nuts are fragrant and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.  
  3. Drain and return the pasta to the same pot. Add the cream, lemon zest and juice, red pepper flakes, Parmesan, basil, chicken and toasted pine nuts. Toss to combine and season with pepper.  
  4. Divide the pasta among bowls and serve with more Parmesan at the table.
