Mascarpone cream sauce, variation 5 ~Rice Balls~

Here is my 5th recipe variation using the Mascarpone cheese sauce: rice balls! They are cute little fried balls of rice about the size of meatballs. Melty mascapone sauce combines with rice to make them creamy on the inside, and the balls are lightly fried to make them crispy on the outside. They're great as a party appetizer, as well as a main entrée.

Zucchini Stuffed with Pilaf

Ordinary, even left over pilaf can become a beautiful dish. In my version, I decided to improve upon it in a couple of ways. For starters, I paired it with colorful, saucy zucchini. Then, for its presentation, I gave it a tight, petite circular form. This dish can either be served as a side dish or main entrée. Easy to make, but impressive for both the eyes and the palette.
