This pasta salad calls for penne, but you can use any pasta you have on hand.
Fill a large pot 3/4 full with water and bring to boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain the pasta.
While the pasta is cooking, put the asparagus and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the asparagus on high power until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
In a bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, basil, garlic and pepper. Add the asparagus, pasta and goat cheese and toss until well mixed. Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to cool.
Divide the pasta between the plates. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve.
