This rich dish is traditional of Naples, where it's served for Christmas or any special meal. It is a baked rice with fried small meatballs, hard boiled eggs, mortadella sausage and mozzarella cheese. It requires some work but you can divide the prep over several days let it rest so the flavors will mix better.
This baked rice is the ideal dish for a busy holiday meal simply because you actually have to prepare it in advance. In order for the ingredients to mix and gain flavor, make it the day before serving, cover in foil and let sit on the counter for a few hours, then refrigerate and reheat briefly before serving.
