  • 2 red onions , sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g pasta shapes
  • 4 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sultana
  • 4 tsp caper , drained and rinsed well
  • 2 tbsp toasted pine nut
  • 140g spinach leaves


  • STEP 1

    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.

  • STEP 2

    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.
