Spicy Sausage Pasta

I'm loving spicy sausage recipes lately! I found another yummy one on pinterest, from this blog that I had to share. 

What You Need:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb smoked sausage (I used turkey sausage) 
1.5 cups diced onion 
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth 
1 can RoTel, Mild
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oz penne pasta 
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, each
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions or green onions

What You Do:
1. Add olive oil to an oven-safe skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

2. Add broth, tomatoes, cream, pasta, salt and pepper and stir. Bring to a boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.

 3. Remove skillet from heat and stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining cheese and sprinkle with scallions. Broil until cheese is melted, spotty brown, and bubbly.
