  7. Mix for about 30 seconds and then add the tomatoes. 
  8. Cook for 1 minute while adding salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

  10. Carefully lay the pasta in the empty space and add the vegetable stock. 
  11. Break apart some of the basil and add to the pasta and tomato mixture. Cook the pasta mixture for about 9 minutes.
