Makes about 2 dozen.

Note: Kids love this appetizer from Italy, with the hidden treasure at the center being savory prosciutto and oozing cheese. Arborio rice is recommended, but this dish can be made with brown rice, as well, although make sure you cook it long enough with a little extra stock. From “Lidia’s Favorite Recipes,” by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich.
