The Eye-Opening Supper
You and your sweetheart may think you've tried every possible iteration of meatballs—pork, slow-cooker, no-roll—but we have one that may be new to you, and that could be just the thing to rekindle your admiration for the dish. This no-fuss yet impressive casserole starts with bite-size meatballs made from ground lamb and seasoned with cumin, paprika, salt and cayenne pepper. You nestle them into a baked, golden yellow-rice (scented with saffron) pilaf during the last few minutes of cooking, which makes for a stunning presentation.
