Giada De Laurentiis told fans not only about one of her favorite dishes, but also how you can make a similar dish in less than 40 minutes.
On May 14, De Laurentiis posted a photo of the new recipe to her Instagram page @thegiadzy with the caption: “One of @Giadadelaurentiis’ favorite dishes in Rome: the mortadella pistachio meatballs at @dillaroma. She had the honor of learning how to make them, and we’re lucky that her recipe was inspired by the dish – it’s incredibly delicious.”
So it’s super cool to know one of De Laurentiis’ favorite restaurants and dishes. She even said that every time she goes back to Rome, she “orders the same meatballs,” and that she needs to learn how to make them. But she just made fans a super-similar recipe that takes just 35 minutes to prepare and cook.
For the meatballs, you’ll need to grab quite a few ingredients such as lemon zest, kosher salt, Parmesan cheese, and ground pork, just to name a few. For the mouthwatering sauces, grab ingredients like pistachios, basil leaves, and arugula, just to name a few.
This beginner-friendly recipe takes about half a dozen steps where you start by combining many of the ingredients for the delectable meatballs in a bowl and in no time spoon the homemade pesto over the meatballs to serve.
You can see her doing the recipe in season one of Bobby and Giada in Italy on Discovery+.
