Add the chopped onion, pitted olives, torn basil leaves, thyme and bay leaf then cook until translucent -- about 2-3 minutes. Strain the san marzano tomatoes and hand crush into a separate bowl, than add to skillet. Bring to boil, turn heat to low and simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil to cook the pasta. The salted water should taste like the sea.

Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with basil leaves and some shaved salata ricotta.
