Put the garlic and stock in a small nonreactive saucepan 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 mashed with a fork.
Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.
Set aside.
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 to 4 minutes for homemade or other fresh pasta, 8 to 10 minutes for dry).
Meanwhile, put 1 tablespoon of the water in a nonstick frying pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Add the broccoli and onion, 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, until the shrimp turn pink.
Remove from the heat.
When the pasta is done, drain it in a colander and return it to the pot over very low heat.
Add the garlic puree and mix well to coat the pasta.
Add the broccoli-shrimp mixture and the season-ings.
Toss together until well blended and serve immediately.
