A nice light meal. I have amused myself over the number of people who either tossed meat in or used it as a side dish with meat. The 2nd & 3rd times I made this, my entire purpose was trying to do a non-meat day following a couple of red-meat days. It went great with garlic bread (yes, more garlic) and does well as a main dish. It's also pretty easy and I usually have everything on hand. Now, all that said, it was good but not great. I used dried basil - I rarely have fresh around, hate chopping it, and I'm possibly the only one on earth that likes it as well and sometimes better than fresh. (But for those who didn't know, you only use about 1/3 dried. And even at that, I think half that would be enough for this.) I wanted the "sauce" warm but wanted to keep it simple, so I just tossed the olive oil & garlic in with the butter as it was melting, and then kept that warm. I poured that over the pasta, tossed a bit, and then added the basil, pepper, a hair of salt, and the cheese last. As a main dish, I felt this was more like 6 servings.
