Cook the pasta according in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.
Meanwhile, trim the woody ends from the asparagus spears and scrape any tough skin with a vegetable peeler. Fresh slender spring asparagus usually needs no scraping. Cut the spears into 1 to 2-inch long pieces and set aside.
Heat the oil in a small skillet and add the garlic. Saute over low heat for a minute or two or until golden. Add the asparagus and a small amount of water. Cover and steam until the asparagus is done to your liking but still bright green. Add the arugula, cover, and steam very briefly (less than a minute will do), just until the arugula wilts down slightly.
Combine the pasta, asparagus arugula mixture, and dried tomatoes in a serving bowl and toss well. Season with salt and pepper and serve at once.
