From Sunset magazine. The lemon flavor is pronounced so if you don't love lemon, you might want to cut back on the amount of juice used or omit the zest.

Delicious dish. We made this for our Easter celebration to serve with lamb - perfect accompaniament. We like lemon so I chose to use both the juice and the zest. Next time we might use chicken broth in place the of the water to add additional flavor. It took our potatoes more than 30 minutes also. I stirred the potates during the first 30 mintes of cooking as the tops were drying so next time I might cover the potoates with foil for more even cooking and then remove it when adding the cheese. Thanks for a great combination bobo3039!
