  1. Cook the Italian sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and no longer pink inside, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Transfer sausages to a plate. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices and set aside.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghettini at a boil until tender yet firm, about 8 minutes; drain.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir asparagus pieces in the hot oil until they start to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 more minute.
  5. Mix in diced roma tomatoes, garlic salt, and black pepper; cook and stir until the tomatoes soften slightly, 1 or 2 more minutes. Remove vegetables from heat.
  6. Toss the sliced sausage in the skillet with the asparagus and tomatoes to combine; lightly mix in the spaghettini.
  7. Sprinkle the spaghettini and vegetables with Parmesan cheese.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is a simple, solid recipe that is very easy to prepare and makes a beautiful presentation. My only change was to use bulk Italian sausage in place of link. Thanks, tipsuda!

We really enjoyed this. I used whole wheat pasta, grape tomatoes and added a cup of pasta water, per Rachel Ray, because of the whole wheat pasta. The next day I added a touch of jarred Alfredo...

This was awesome! 5 stars! I like everything with bold seasoning so I doubled the garlic salt and pepper and also liberally "sprinkled" with Parmesan.

I took the sausage out of the casing before cooking it. Browned it and made it into little chunks. Used penne pasta. Delish!

Great recipe, my wife usually prefers pasta with a lot of sauce but she gave 2 thumbs up on this one. Only change was using a BGe to cook the sausage so I had a bit of smoke flavour, will mak...

Delish! Used two links of chicken sausage to lighten it up but otherwise perfect meal! Family (including 7 year old) scarfed it. Thanks for ideas to cook our local fresh veggies!

We made this on the grill. I put precooked, sliced, sundried tomato/basil chicken sausage in a foil pack with the garlic, asparagus, black pepper and a pinch of kosher salt(I don't use garlic sa...

We cut the quantity down to two and used prepared pork meatballs to cut down on preparation time. I was surprised at the perfection of the seasonings. Just enough garlic, the right amount of t...
