The Italian first course recipes of the Veneto are extremely varied because they reflect a territory that encompasses the sea, lakes and mountains and although Venice plays an important role in the Venetian cuisine, don’t overlook the other provinces.

The Italian first courses from Veneto reflect the nature of the territory with a main type of pasta, bigoli, similar to trofie, which are eaten with a fish sauce.
The nature of the territory allows the cultivation of rice, which is another of the strong dish of Veneto, combining with “peas”, or fish or vegetables.
