|Rice Ring Stuffed With Meat Sauce|
1 bottle or can of tomato puree
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp. olive oil
450 gr (1 lb) ground beef
1 cup frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
Sautee the onion, garlic until translucent. Add ground beef and sautee until fully cooked. Add the tomato sauce, parsley and let simmer on med/low heat for about 40 minutes stirring the sauce often. Add peas and let cook. Set aside.
For the rice ring you will need to boil 6 cups of water with salt and 3 cups of Arborio rice.
In the meantime prepare your bundt pan.
|Butter your bundt pan and coat with bread crumbs, I used the Italian seasoning bread crumbs|
Once your Arborio rice has cooked and cooled down, add 1 cup of parmesan cheese and two eggs to your rice. Blend thoroughly.
|Wet Hands and Form Rice in Pan|
|Fill With Meat Sauce and add chunks of mozzarella (about half a ball)|
|Cover with remaining rice. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes|
Let cool for about 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining sauce.
