  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in flour. Whisk in chicken broth until smooth, then stir in half and half. (it's helpful if you have this pre measured as it can cook fast).

  6. Simmer until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir in Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Mix until smooth.
  8. Slice sausage into bite sized pieces and add to the sauce. Add parsley and cooked pasta. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
  9. Preheat broiler.

  11. Top with the rest of the mozzarella cheese.
  12. Broil until cheese is bubbly and starts browning.
