Arancini is a traditional Italian dish consisting of fried rice balls. Made with risotto, sometimes the arancini have peas or mozzarella inside. For this recipe, I included the mozzarella, but omitted the peas. Crispy on the outside and soft and rich on the inside, arancini is a filling and delicious dish that is best served with tomato sauce.
