Bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil.
Salt generously and add the pasta.
Cook your linguine for a minute less than the packet suggests.
Check your pasta, it should be on the verge of being cooked but with some bite.
Scoop ¼ cup of the pasta water out and set to one side.
Drain the remaining water away and return the pasta to the pan.
Spoon over the pesto and stir well.
Add the reserved water and stir everything together over a low heat, until coated and glossy.
Divide the pasta between 4 plates, add a spoonful of mascarpone, a sprinkling of parmesan and some basil leaves.
Eat with gusto :-)
