- Start frying the onions in the oil in a non-stick frying pan - you'll need to cook them for about 10 mins until they're very soft. Meanwhile, boil the pasta.
- Stir the vinegar, sultanas, capers and most of the pine nuts into the soft onions with some seasoning, then cook for 1 min more to soften the sultanas. Stir in the spinach with a splash of pasta water. Drain the pasta, then toss with the onion mix - the spinach should wilt as you do. Divide between 2 bowls, scatter with the remaining pine nuts and serve.

- We start with the notorious Sarde in Saor, sweet and sour sardines. The Saor is the preparation of a dish that sees the mixing of sweet, sour and salty, usually achieved with a combination of a main ingredient, onions and vinegar.
- Local expression of pasta are bigoli, very thick and coarse spaghetti, usually seasoned with fish or game sauces. The most famous combination is Bigoli in Salsa, a salted sardine and onion sauce, one of the oldest recipes of Venice.
- Rice and risotto are one of the main staples of Venice and Veneto and the first dish that comes to mind in this case is the famous Â Risi e bisi Â (rice and peas), the consistency being a mix between a soup and a risotto.
- Cod was introduced to Venice in 1431, when a Venetian captain brought it back to the city after a long stay in Norway. Venetian fell immediately in love with the dried cod and found many ways to cook it, the most international known is BaccalÃ Mantecato, a creamy soft mousse like dish, mainly served with polenta.
- Â The beans of Lamon, in the province of Belluno in the Dolomites is the main ingredient for another world-known recipe, Pasta e Fasioi or Pasta e Fagioli.

- Polenta was introduced in Venice after the discovery of America, but it soon became the main staple of the Republic, very often substituting bread on Venetian tables.
- And with polenta flour you can also make the Zaleti, the most famous and traditional of all Venetian cakes. These cookies. recognizable by the warm yellow color and the coarse look, due to the maize flour, were typical of the Carnival in Venice, but now they can be found in all the pastry shops and bakeries all year round and areÂ alsoÂ considered as bringing good luck.

- Last but not least, the most famous of all cakes (maybe in the world??) : TiramisÃ¹. TiramisÃ¹ finds its origins in Treviso, only few decades ago, in the ’80s, when it was invented by Ada Campeol of the restaurant â€œalle Beccherieâ€ in Treviso, who created a fresh energy dessert to sustain her while she was nursing her son.
