1 package kielbasa sausage
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 can mild Rotel Tomatoes (I just chopped up some tomatoes)
1/2-1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp chicken bullion
8 oz Monterrey Jack Cheese, shredded


Cook pasta until al dente. Meanwhile, saute onion and Kielbasa in skillet with olive oil for about 4 minutes Add garlic and saute 3 more minutes. Add tomatoes, whipping cream and bullion. Bring to boil and let simmer a few minutes. Add pasta. Bring to boil and let simmer a few more minutes. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Another option: saute the onion, Kiebasa and garlic in olive oil. Add the whipping cream, 2 cups chicken broth, tomatoes and uncooked pasta. Cook 15 minutes or until pasta cooked to desired tenderness. Add cheese and stir until melted.
