The Casserole That'll Make Your Table Look Gorgeous
We were smitten when we discovered this delicious and Middle Eastern–inspired casserole. It starts with bite-size meatballs made from ground lamb and seasoned with cumin, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper. You nestle them into a baked rice pilaf during the last few minutes of cooking, and the golden yellow rice (scented with saffron) gets bright pops of color from the red bell pepper.
