Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Once the pasta becomes tender, drain thoroughly.
While the pasta is cooking, put the asparagus and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the asparagus on high power until softened (approximately 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.
