    2 whole garlic heads, minced
    1 pound sweet turkey Italian sausage
    1 teaspoon dried sage
    1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    5 cups low-fat milk
    1 cup (4 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
    2/3 cup (about 2 1/2 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1 box hot cooked penne
    Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon. Place sausage in a large bowl; stir in sage and rosemary.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Add the flour to melted butter, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add the milk; cook until slightly thick, stirring constantly with a whisk (about 10 minutes). Stir in garlic, cheeses, salt, and pepper. Remove mixture from heat. Add cheese sauce and cooked pasta to sausage, stirring to coat. Spoon pasta mixture in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
