Ah Gregg, one g or two? Add one or more for Covid-19 and take Paxlovid and order monoclonal antibodies just in case, add extra virgin olive oil from Greece, organic. And sip the red.

I can’t wait to make this. A vendor gave me a mirror with John Paul II, and said I was Roman. I’m Jewish. Italy is in my heart, and my mother told me Roma is in my blood. I love to cook, and Italian cuisine is my favorite and pizza is a speciality. The ingredients are perfect. Look up Al Gorgoni, a great guitarist, the guy who played the guitar on S&G’s “Sounds of Silence.” We trade recipes. Anyhow, thanks and Merry Christmas!

Hi Greg,

I just forwarded this post onto my wife and told her not to discount it before she finished reading the whole post. She is the part of this partnership who does the cooking, and she is trying to keep me alive after too many years of drinking and eating things that caused me into quintuple cardiac bypass surgery. We are now vegans and have been for eight years. The conversion was a workout, but we did it, or I should say that my wife did it for us, and I am still alive as a result of her nutritional planning and the skill of a good surgeon. But even though olive oil is no longer an ingredient that we should cook with and neither is fish of any sort, this recipe sounds like one that we should indulge in once a year to honor your grandmother while going rogue from our quest to keep me alive. Thanks for sharing it and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Merry Christmas Greg! Thanks for all the magical words and vibes for this, and years past! Be sure to take care of yourself as you continue to travel through this shit-strewn path, in challenging times!

Even we atheists can find the words comforting, enjoy your day!!

Greg is right, folks. I've used anchovy in my pasta sauce for years.

Terrible news about covid raging through your family, Greg.

Merry Christmas!

We’re so lucky to have you Greg 💟. My life parallels with yours quite often & I am always grateful for your writings, you seem to bring things back around so we can make sense of them. This fight we’re in requires us to side eye a lot of would be traitors & it’s real easy to start lumping in the innocent bystanders 😂. I wish balance for us as a society bc right now it’s nearly impossible. I felt guilty having the required 10 days off over Thanksgiving when I too finally got covid but dammit we’ve worked harder than most ppl to NOT get it so just enjoy your downtime my friend 🥹

Merry Christmas & ♥️ HNY! Thanks for the recipe 😋

Hope you and yours make a full recovery. Paxlovid will make a difference if you start it soon enough. Keep up the good work.

Merry Christmas! Sending positive vibes for a quick recovery for you and your son. And to your wife who is taking care of you both! Ahh...the 18th birthday! My daughter turned 18 this summer and what a shock to the system it has been. We didn't realize the full extent of having our child turn 18 and all the ways we were not able to access information we needed to continue to parent her. Medical records, prescriptions, insurance were out of our reach, just to name a few. Very eye-opening! Welcome to this next phase of parenting!

I'm one of the few who adore anchovies, and I can't wait to make oily oilies. Thanks!
