For the Meatballs:
1 and 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
Preheat the oven to 500 °F, 260 °C.
Make Ahead Tips:The meatballs can be made 1 day ahead and stored in the refrigerator. They can also be formed and stored in the freezer up to 3 months.
To Make the Meatballs:
Roast the Meatballs:
Place 18-20 meatballs in a 9 by 13-inch (broiler-safe) baking dish and roast the meatballs for 10 minutes. Turn the broiler on and cook the meatballs for 5 minutes. They will become golden.
Set the pan aside and allow the meatballs to rest for 5-10 minutes. Carefully release them from the pan using a spatula. Leave them in the same baking pan.
To Make the Sauce:
Reduce the oven’s temperature to 400 °F, 200 °C.
Put it all together:
Place the orzo in the baking pan and pour the tomato sauce on top. Season with 1-2 teaspoons of salt. Mix it together.
Bake on the center rack of the oven, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until the orzo is cooked, al dente.
Remove from the oven and add the ice cubes. Mix well. Garnish with parsley and feta cheese.
