Spicy Sausage Pasta

I found this great recipe on Pinterest. I spent quite a bit of time clicking through Kevin & Amanda - the blog that posted the original recipe. I have found several recipes that I can't wait to try.  I love finding new sources for recipes. If the rest of the recipes are as tasty as this one, Kevin & Amanda is a blog worthy of  notice!

Spicy Sausage Pasta

1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb smoked sausage, cut into slices
1.5 cups diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 (10 oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies, 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
Add olive oil to an oven-safe skillet over medium high heat until just smoking. Add sausage and onions and cook until lightly browned. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. 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. 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.
