Arancini are ooey, gooey fried little rice balls, my favorite way to use up leftover risotto. They are so easy to whip up, and the ingredients are very flexible. Stuff a cube of cheese in the center. I like to add ham, sausage, anchovy, or an olive to the center of my Arancini. Serve this savory antipasto with a side of Homemade Tomato Sauce and a beautiful glass of Madonna Nera Rosso di Montalcino.
