2. Bring water to boil in a large pot with a pinch of salt. Make another tinfoil bed for the asparagus. Wash asparagus and trim rough ends. Drizzle with olive oil, add a bit of salt and red chilli flakes. Set timer for 20 minutes and put tray with salmon and asparagus in the oven (both should be cooked through at the same time). Now add pasta to boiling water.
