Add 2-3 tablespoons of the boiling water of the pasta to the sauce. This will dilute the sauce and provide a smoother texture. Stir all together and turn the cooker to the lowest heat. Cover the pan with a lid to keep the sauce warm while we cook the pasta.

Stir all together

Drain the orecchiette when ready, and add it to the pan with the warm sauce. Toss the pasta with the sauce, stirring all together for a couple of minutes.
