    This wonderful rice dish has the texture of risotto without the constant stirring. Taken from the Oct 2002 issue of "Bon Apetit."

      I Like the ease of preparation. I added just a bit more lemon juice as per reviewers suggestion. Despite all of the Parmesan cheese, I felt it needed just a bit of salt. Will add some next time. :)

      I was just getting ready to post this and here it is! This is a wonderful alternative to the time-consuming risotto. I use an extra T. of lemon juice. Also, a high quality, freshly greated parmesan cheese, really makes this dish for us. Thanks so much for posting, Yooper.

      I love risotto dishes; and think they pair well with many types of meats. I prepared this with a pork roast tonight. I gave it four stars because next time I might up the lemon just a tad and add chicken boullion to the water when it is boiling.
