Prep time 15mins
Cook time 25mins
Serves or Makes: 8


  • 1 pound medium pasta shells, cooked al dente
  • 1 pound Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 16 ounces fontina, shredded
  • 8 ounces sharp provolone, shredded
  • 1/ 2 cup parmesan cheese, grated plus more for serving
  • Kosher salt, as needed
  • Black pepper, as needed


  • Step 1

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, add Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage to a large pan and cook over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Prepare the sauce by melting butter over med-low in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook for 2-3 minutes. Slowly add milk while whisking continuously until the mixture is completely smooth. Bring milk mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the sauce begins to thicken (careful not to boil sauce), about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in cheddar and provolone, one handful at a time. Whisk in the grated parmesan, and season with kosher salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the cooked Hatfield Sweet Italian Sausage, sprinkle with more grated parmesan, and serve immediately.
