1. Bring a large pot of salted water with one cup red wine to a boil. Add pasta to and cook for only about 3-5 minutes, until al dente. Drain well using a colander, keeping 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

2. In a large skillet, heat oil, garlic and chili pepper on low heat.  Gently cook about 5 minutes. Don’t let the garlic burn, it will be bitter otherwise.  Add the remaining 1/2 cup red wine and cream. Increase the heat to medium.

3. Add spaghetti to the skillet, tossing in the wine with tongs until wine is absorbed, add the reserved cooking water with wine to keep pasta wet.  Test pasta for doneness, adjust seasoning as needed, then add cheese and basil and toss until the wine sauce thickens enough to coat the pasta, about 1 minute. Serve with additional parmesan shavings and basil on top.
