  3. Add the soaking liquid, being careful to leave behind the silt at the bottom of the bowl. Cook until the liquid becomes syrupy.

  4. Then add tomatoes and a good sprinkling of salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook at a low simmer for 45 minutes, crushing the tomatoes as the sauce reduces. The sauce should not be watery, but concentrated and thick.

  6. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and combine well over medium heat. Serve immediately with a few leaves of basil or parsley shredded on top. Serve with grated Parmesan if desired.
