Bella ciao, Goodbye Beautiful!

For Greece, 2012

 

Una mattina mi son svegliato,
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
Una mattina mi son svegliato
e ho trovato l’invasor.

O partigiano, portami via,
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
O partigiano, portami via,
ché mi sento di morir.

E se io muoio da partigiano,
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
E se io muoio da partigiano,
tu mi devi seppellir.

E seppellire lassù in montagna,
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
E seppellire lassù in montagna
sotto l’ombra di un bel fior.

E tutte le genti che passeranno
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
E tutte le genti che passeranno
ti diranno «Che bel fior!»

«È questo il fiore del partigiano»,
o bella, ciao! Bella, ciao! Bella, ciao, ciao, ciao!
«È questo il fiore del partigiano
morto per la libertà!».

Orecchiette Cinzia

Orecchiette-con-zucchine-apsaraci-e-salsiccia-2

by Alfonso Alongi

Orecchiette with zucchini asparagus italian sausage (an upgrade) and wild fennel and cream

I change this recipe to give more flavour by adding italian sausage

Ingredients:

– 3 zucchini medium size

– 250 gr of asparagus

– garlic

– chilly

– 250 gr of italian sausage

– 500 gr orecchiette

– wild fennel

Steps:

Take the skin of the sausages and cut in small pieces with scissors is easier then with a knife – in a frypan with olive oil fry 2 gloves of garlic akready chopped with some chilly, add the sausages until is cooked.

In another frypan fry the zucchini sliced and cut in half moons fry until brown now half of the zucchini add to a blender and after put back with the rest.

Take the asparagus at brake point cook the hard part in boiled water for 10 min until tender. Take out and cook the soft part for few min.

Now mix all the ingredients together if you can find some wild fennel fresh give an extra flavour you only maybe 30gr., cook all together to give a taste harmony to all and to finish add some double cream if it is to thick.

Cook the orecchiette or any favourite pasta and mix with the sauce and to finish some parmesan cheese… Bon appetit!

Can easily 3-4 people can enjoy with some salad for a nice lunch or early dinner.
