Arancini (Italian Rice Balls)

Arancini (Italian Rice Balls) by lisa

Arancini means "little oranges" in Sicilian and they can be found all over Palermo. Cooked and flavored Arborio rice is formed around a filling of tomato, meat and peas, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden brown. When I make them they're about the size of a baseball,but you can make them slightly smaller. . Soft and crispy…

Lamb Risotto

Lamb Risotto by Mary Joseph

I want to call this a "Lebanese Risotto" because I used a lot of the spices and ingredients that are in a lot of the recipes I grew up cooking. So needless to say this would go great with a nice fatoush salad or a tomato & cucumber salad with a side of Hummus and pita bread.

Italian Bean and Rice Soup

Italian Bean and Rice Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious soup culled from the treasure trove of recipes by Marcella Hazan. It can be made with pasta instead of rice, but is wonderful with Arborio rice. It's hearty and flavorful. Marcella would probably cringe, but I like to eat it with a healthy sprinkle of sumac. If you don't have sumac, black pepper will add flavor…

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms

Easy Risotto & Gourmet Mushrooms by Amos Miller

Risotto scares too many cooks. It's really a simple dish, though not commonly served at the American dinner table - unless you have some (usually Northern) Italian blood in your family. When done with care, risotto can be a sublime accompaniment to all types of dishes. In fact, you can add all types of things to a risotto to…

Butternut Squash Risotto by MentalChew

My baby signed "more" today. Why you ask? She wanted more Butternut Squash Risotto. The extra dishes and hour of prep and stirring were well worth it. Last night, the Good Apple and I were watching Alton Brown's episode about rice. He constructed this recipe while featuring the in's and out's of risotto. We watched it...twice,…

Roman Rice Balls with Mozzarella

Roman Rice Balls with Mozzarella by Bob Vincent

This recipe is adapted from one in Good Life Books Italian Cooking published in 1978. These are a bit time consuming to make but once the balls are formed they can be frozen individually for use later. These are great as an appetizer, side dish or buffet component. I served them with Meatball Lollipops, Red Sauce and grilled…

Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto with Browned Sage and Shallots by SusanA

This is the first time I tried to make risotto and really loved it. I was inspired by a Barefoot Contessa episode. It's great for the fall. I decided to add some some sage and shallots browned and crisped in butter at the end. Yum!
