  5. Taste, and season with salt, white pepper and cayenne.
  6. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  7. Add the linguine and cook until al dente, 2 to 3 minutes for fresh, 8 to 10 minutes for dried.
  8. Drain well.
  9. Return to the warm pot.
  10. Add the warm sauce, chopped basil and chives.
  11. Toss well.
