Rice bomb (bomba di riso), recipe from Emilia-Romagna

Artichoke lasagne
Artichoke lasagne. And time to cook
Artichoke lasagne belongs to the long list of dishes that have graced my family's Sunday lunch and a variety of other occasions such as, for example, Easter lunch or Easter Monday, above all, if it fell early, that is, in March, like this year.
