    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This rice is absolutely amazing! If you love lemon and rice then you should not pass this up, this rice has all the creaminess of risotto without all the constant stirring. To insure creaminess use only aborio rice for this. If you are not a garlic lover then leave it out.

      I'm so pleased to have found this deliciously flavoursome and it is SO easy to make recipe, which I know I'll be making again often. It has so many of the ingredients I just love - onion, garlic, basil and lemon -. The only change I made was to add another of my favourite ingredients a generous handful of baby spinach leaves that needed to be used in step 6. Thank you, KITTENCAL, for another wonderful recipe!
