Method: 
Heat olive oil in a saute pan and cook garlic and sliced mushrooms over medium-low heat until mushrooms are tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Set aside.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Trim asparagus, cutting off the woody stems and steam just until tender. Drain and cut on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces. Toss hot drained pasta with the mushroom mixture, asparagus, goat cheese and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with toasted pine nuts.
