Italian Rigatoni with Cheese and Sausage Recipe

Ingredients:
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups prepared marinara sauce
1/2 lb rigatoni pasta
1/4 lb Italian sausage
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
extra virgin olive oil

Preparation Instructions:
Cook rigatoni until tender in large pot, drain pasta. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Cook sausage in large heavy pot over medium high heat until no longer pink, stirring frequently and breaking up with back of a wooden spoon. Add garlic and saute until soft, about 2 minutes. Drain off excess oil and return pot to medium high heat. Add marinara sauce and crushed red pepper, then pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide pasta among four 1 1/4-cup custard cups, or double recipe and put in one large baking dish. Sprinkle parmesan and mozzarella over. Place in broiler until cheese melts and begins to brown, watching closely to prevent burning, about 1 1/2 minute. Sprinkle with parsley and olive oil and serve.
