Bring a pot of water to a boil, add pasta, and cook to al dente.
In a food processor, combine basil and pine nuts, and blend. Add the garlic and drizzle in the olive oil while the processor is in operation. When the mixture turns to a paste, add the salt, pepper, and Parmesan, and pulse until well blended.
To serve, simply combine the pasta and pesto together, and sprinkle Parmesan on top.
