Drain hearts of palm and pull apart by hand. Add to sauce mixture and stir until incorporated. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook about 20 minutes, until sauce has thickened a bit and hearts of palm are very tender. Continue pulling apart hearts of palm while cooking, using a fork.
