Cook sausage in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink; drain on a paper towel to pick up excess grease. Combine sausage and next 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Fill each shell with a heaping teaspoonful of sausage mixture, and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve warm. Buying Time Fill and freeze these unbaked tartlets in their original tray. The tray slips neatly into a large ziploc plastic bag. When you're ready to bake the frozen tartlets, transfer them to un-greased baking sheets and add 2-3 minutes to the original baking time.
