BRING a large pot of water to a boil. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
COOK pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, ADD squash and sear until brown, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and saute for an additional 2 minutes.
ADD asparagus to the skillet. Saute for 2 minutes.
REMOVE garlic from the skillet. Add oven-dried tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.
