Sicilian Rice Balls - 12 Pack

(Customer Reviews)

Ralphie’s Carolina rice blend consists of creamy Parmigiano-Reggiano with added pecorino Romano cheese, fresh minced curly parsley combined with a family secret blend of spices, stuffed with 90/10 grass-fed beef slowly simmered in 3rd generation marinara sauce with peas and oozing mozzarella!

Ralphie Grotto spent many a memorable afternoon making traditional Italian rice balls, called arancini, with his grandfather while growing up in Brooklyn. After being featured on CNBC’s “Restaurant Startup” in 2016, Ralphie’s Rice Balls took off, receiving heaps of media attention and popping up at fairs and feasts across the region. Ralphie is putting new-school twists on this old-world treat, using only 100-percent natural ingredients in his lineup of rice balls.

Rice Balls must be heated prior to enjoying
