Cooking with Kids: Venetian-Style Pasta
A super healthy pasta dish the kids will love eating as much as they like making it.
Ingredients (serves 2):
2 Red onions, sliced
1 tbsp Olive oil
200g Pasta shapes
4 tsp Balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Sultanas
4 tsp Capers, drained and rinsed well
2 tbsp Toasted pine nuts
140g Spinach leaves
- 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.
