Every single day of the month of July and August there is an outdoor movie in Siena. There are for sure a few movies which we really would like to see. It would be crazy to spend the evening in our boiling home cinema 😉.
A simple pasta and a fresh shower is all we need before leaving our house.
Boil 120 grams of paccheri pasta ( short large tubes) al dente. Add 500 grams of mushrooms during the last minutes.
Chop and fry 4 garlic cloves, 1 chili and 1 onion in a drizzle of olive oil. Add 2 table spoons of good quality balsamic vinegar ( instead of red wine). Add 1 can of tomatoes and allow to simmer for approximately 15 mins. Add a handful of chopped fresh basil. Mix with 200 grams of smoked herring. Taste, add pepper and salt ( be careful, herring is already really salty). Mix pasta with sauce in an oven dish. Spread some mozzarella and fresh basil. Grill in the oven for 15 mins.
Finish with fresh basil.
This outdoor cinema at the Fortezza in Siena, awesome!
