This recipe is delicious! Unfortunately, it is loaded with calories, but it is great for when you want to have that occasional splurge for comfort food. I got this recipe from People magazine, I believe, of all places. I didn't even know they published recipes but it was in an edition I happen to be browsing through right before the Super Bowl this year. I made it for a party and it was gone in no time. This cheese sauce would be awesome on it's own I think as well. You can definitely make this without the sausage and it would be great as well but it makes a wonderful one-dish meal if included.
