Rice Casserole with Escarole and Little Meatballs

By The Editors

Published June 27, 2024

This garlicky baked rice dish features polpetti, those light, cheesy Italian meatballs. Traditionally, they’re made with a mixture of pork, beef, and veal, and you can do that, though I’m using only beef here. The escarole almost melts away into the casserole, but to make the rice even creamier, add 1/2 cup to 1 cup more stock, uncover, and stir a couple of times while it’s baking.
