In large skillet (heat safe or cast iron), brown the sausage. Add onions and cook until onions are translucent. Add garlic and cook for one minute for flavor. Pour in chicken broth, Belfonte Heavy Whipping Cream, Rotel and pasta. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add half of the cheese mixture and stir.
