Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta until just tender, about . Drain and toss in olive oil. Set aside. Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet. Squeeze sausage from casing into pan, crumbling it into small pieces. Add garlic and cook until sausage is browned and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes.
