Cook the pasta according to the label directions, adding the asparagus to the boiling water during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain. Meanwhile, heat the salsa in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until the tomatoes release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the goat cheese and sugar and heat until smooth.
