  3. Sliced garlic to be sautéed in olive oil in low heat till garlic is soft but not brown.
  4. Add the sautéed garlic into the mixing bowl and mix well.
  5. Add salt to taste and finally add lots of fresh basil. Mix together.

  7. Important note: Do not wash pasta in cold water. It is a very unnatural thing for the pasta and will alter the texture of it. Always drain and add a little olive oil to 'loosen' it.
  8. Never, never, never rinse pasta in tap water!
