How to make Pesto Arancini with Marinara Sauce
My Tip:Chef Tips: 1. After rolling the Risotto balls, you may chill in the refrigerator as it gives them a firmer texture, and then fry them. 2. Time saving tip: Make the risotto a day ahead of time and keep it the fridge until ready to use and all you’ll need to do the day of is to fry them when required. 3. Time saving tip: You may make the Marinara sauce one day in advance, and rewarm on a slow heat and use as required.
