Put the spaghetti in a pot of salted water and cook for eight minutes until it is al dente, that is, cooked but not soft. In the meantime, wash the tomatoes and cut them in half. Then put the basil leaves in a mixing bowl with olive oil, salt and parmesan. Puree this to a fresh basil pesto with a blender. Then take the spaghetti out of the water and add the basil pesto, halved tomatoes and mozzarella balls. Add the pine nuts, previously toasted in the pan. The dish can be served on plates for four people.
