-1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

-2 tablespoon grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
-Place the almonds, sundried tomatoes, garlic, red pepper flakes and basil in a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are finely chopped.
-Add the vinegar and tomatoes and pulse again until the tomatoes are finely chopped. With the food processor running, add the oil in a steady stream until a thick, slightly chunky paste forms. Do not over process.
– Stop the food processor and scrape down the sides. Then, add the cheese and process again until just combined.
– Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
