1/4 cup white onion
12 large shrimp
1/4 cup fresh dill

1/8 cup parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Pasta in Garlic Sauce

  1. Put the garlic and stock in a small pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for about 20 minutes, until the garlic is soft and easily smashed with a fork. Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor or blender, and puree until smooth. Set aside.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta, stirring to make sure the strands don?t stick together, and cook over high heat to desired tenderness.

  3. Meanwhile, put 1 tablespoon of water in a nonstick frying pan and bring to boil over medium heat. Add the broccoli and onion and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Add the shrimp, dill and the remaining tablespoon of water. Stir, recover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat.

  4. When the pasta in done, drain it in a colander and return it to the pot over very low heat. Add the garlic puree then mix well to coat the pasta. Add the broccoli-shrimp mixture and the seasonings. Add the parmesan cheese. Toss together until well blended and serve immediately.
