      This was good, but a little too strong on the lemon flavor for my family. That may be because I used a fresh lemon from a friend's tree (I think fresh citrus has more juice that that pruchased at the store). Will try it again with less lemon.

      Beautiful, fresh and sweet (yes, sweet!) recipe! I used a meyer lemon and am pretty sure that it added to the sweetness, but it was sooooooooo unbelievably delicious and unique. We also loved the addition of fresh mint- incredible. I did only add about 2/3 of the parmesan... it was still plenty cheesy and rich. Thanks for SUCH a wonderful recipe. This is my new favorite way to prepare risotto.
