Cook the pasta according to package directions or until al dente. Reserve about 1 cup or more water.
Heat up skillet or saucepan on medium heat, then add butter to the pan, followed by garlic. Saute for about 30 seconds or just until the garlic is soft and fragrant. Add basil.
Turn the heat down to medium-low. Whisk in cream then add parmesan cheese and continue to whisk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Drain the pasta and immediately add to the pan. Toss until coated in sauce. If the sauce is too thick, you may thin it out by adding some reserved pasta water, about 1-2 tablespoons at a time. Garnish with nutmeg, if desired.
Serve immediately as a main course or with meat or salad.
