cooking pasta when water is at a rolling boil.

In a large skillet, over medium heat, add remaining olive oil and sauté
split chiles and garlic. Remove pepper pieces when garlic is golden; add
butter. As soon as the butter is melted, add dill and wine.

Add the shrimp. They will reheat and finish cooking very quickly. The pasta
