  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add pasta. Cook pasta to al dente, per package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Season shrimp with Italian seasoning and Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning. Add shrimp to hot skillet and cook for 2 minutes on each side and then remove from pan.
  4. Add the broccolini to the pan and toss into pan drippings (add a little more olive oil if needed). Lower heat to medium, cover the pan with a lid, and cook broccolini for 3 minutes.
  5. Remove broccolini from pan and pour in the vegetable broth, lemon juice, and coconut milk. Stir in cayenne pepper and Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning.
  6. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes, allowing the sauce to reduce and get a little thicker. Stir in dill and simmer for 5 more minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  7. Add the shrimp and broccolini back into the pan and let it heat through. Drain the pasta and add into the saucepan. Mix until noodles and sauce are well incorporated.
  8. Add a serving to a pasta bowl and top with fresh dill. Enjoy!
