  2. While the pasta is cooking, in a large saute pan over high heat, add 2 tbsp olive oil. Remove sausage from the casing (*also for crabsticks and prawns) and saute and cook until golden brown. Remove them from pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, saute the garlic until lightly brown. (If there is not enough oil, add in an extra 2 tbsp. of olive oil.) Add in the asparagus and cook for a minute. Season with salt, pepper and chili flakes.
