Nick and Rocco Memorial Fettuccine

I am interrupting normal programming to make you cry. Today, Vegansaurus posted an incredibly sad story about Nick Santino, who committed suicide after being pressured to put down his rescued pit bull, Rocco. I am crying.

serves: 1 (or 2, if you don't have an inexplicably, temporarily massive appetite)
prep. time: approx. 20 min.

1/2 lb. tomato basil fettuccine
1 Field Roast sausage, chopped (chipotle variety, as it turns out my dad bought for my stay, very thoughtfully and tastefully but to the disadvantage of this dish)
1/2 bundle of rapini (aka broccoli rabe), leaves only
1 small yellow onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, sliced
handful pine nuts
2 sprigs fresh dill, chopped
olive oil

1. Boil the pasta for 3 minutes, nevertheless overcooking it.
2. Saute onion in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once translucent, add sausage and dill.
3. After five minutes or so, add pine nuts, garlic, and rapini. Lower heat and cover, until rapini is wilted.

I'm not subtle enough to make good pasta dishes.
