  6. Add sundried tomatoes and whisk to separate clumps. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add red pepper flakes.

  7. Cook sauce until thickened, bringing it to a light boil while stirring constantly. Reduce heat, then add Parmesan cheese and diced Roma tomatoes.

  8. Cook until cheese has melted, stirring frequently.
