    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta, cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil to prevent stickiness.
    2. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the asparagus and tomatoes, stirring to coat. Pour in the stock and continue cooking uncovered 10 minutes or until the asparagus is tender, but still bright green.
    3. Place the pasta in a large bowl and toss with asparagus and tomato mixture. Season with dill and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the avocados, lime juice and garlic granules together until blended.
    4. Serve pasta with a dollop of the avocado mixture and top with grated cheese.
