The Eye-Opening Supper
You and your sweetheart may think you've tried every possible iteration of meatballs—pork
—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.
