A no-cook tomato sauce is all about allowing the different ingredients to soak up one another's flavors. Let this one sit for at least an hour -- even three, if you've planned ahead. If your tomatoes are super ripe, skip the knife and tear them to pieces with your hands. (Whole-wheat noodles can sub in for the farro ones.)
