Arancini (Rice Balls)

Revisiting one of my favorites!

Let's Eat!

Last I checked I’ve been Italian all my life, but I never had Arancini until just a few years ago when my as close as family friends, the Carosellas, discovered Arancini while on a trip to Rome. They came home and asked me to make it and it’s since become a family favorite. My wife and I went to Rome a couple years ago, and tried the authentic version and this recipe may actually be better!

Arancini Ingredients:

  • Arborio Rice (must be Arborio! Any other grain will not do!)
  • Half a large onion – diced
  • Chicken Broth (heat to warm)
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 cup white wine (whatever wine you like to drink!)
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Spaghetti sauce (if you don’t have a good recipe see the one in this blog!)
  • Fresh Mozzarella
  • Parsley

Arincini Method:

This recipe takes two days, but could probably be done in one if you start early…
