Add the lemon zest, basil and figs and cook gently for 3 - 4 minutes.
Drain the pasta and gently toss through the figs and basil mixture. Top with pine nuts and parmesan shavings and season with black pepper.
Serve with a green salad and vinaigrette dressing.
Note: For a speedy way to roast pinenuts, stir them continuously over a medium heat in a dry frying pan taking care not to let them burn.
