Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Meanwhile, in a frying pan, saute garlic in oil on low heat, just hot enough to make the garlic sizzle; about 10 to 15 minutes. Season with basil, oregano, parsley and crushed chillies; remove from heat.
In a large bowl, toss cooked pasta with garlic and herb mixture and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
