This is one of those recipes that is so worth the effort that it’s hard to put into words. It kinda makes you want to drink a glass of wine, fall in love with an Italian, quit your job, and move to Southern Italy. It’s seriously that good. I love a good risotto. If I had to pick just one food to take with me to a desert island…Anyway, you get the idea. I didn’t think that risotto could transform itself into an even more delicious dish until I had arancini. Like, for real, add cheese… and breadcrumbs… and fry?! Why didn’t I think of this before?!
Watch the video for a step by step tutorial on how to make this amazing dish. All you need is a little bit of leftover risotto to…ahem…get the ball rolling. You must try this!
