There is a traditional Italian Christmas Eve feast called

“The Feast of Seven Fishes”

…But since you won’t necessarily have time to take a three hour lunch today, we decided to spread out 7-ish courses of fish pasta dishes over the next three days,

-as well as this spicy treat today….

Chicken, slow braised in chilis and tomato,

pollo diavolla

Casarecce, alla Pollo Diavoli, (the devils chicken)

Also today:

Percatelli, in Salse di sepia, (spicy squid ink sauce)

Mezze Maniche, with anchovies and romanesco cauliflower
