1 egg yolk
1/2 c. sundried tomatoes, softened in warm water for 5 mins and sliced thin
2 tbsp. chicken stock
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tbsp. minced parsley

Meanwhile, in a large skilled, warm oil over medium -low heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute until mixture begins to sizzle; remove from heat and set aside.
