"The recipe has been edited to make it clear on how to prepare this dish. It now states what to do with the basil and has clarified a couple of other steps. I have removed the reserved pasta water. I am not sure what the author of the recipe intended to do with it. Sometimes it is used to loosen up sticky pasta but once the olive oil is added to the pasta in this recipe, the pasta should not stick together. I hope the changes to this recipe will make it clearer when it comes to preparing it."
