Simple Arancini… simple because I use a good quality Risotto Mix with all natural ingredients to save time! *Sarafino’s Risotto comes in 16 flavours and you can make this recipe with any one of them. It is all-natural and preservative free, just like scratch!  It is made in the Po Valley in northern Italy where all the best rice is grown.
