    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Found this recipe years ago in a magazine and we never parted! The great flavor of this rice dish works best when served with a simple fish or chicken dish. Please use fresh Parmesan cheese.

      Very tasty rice dish, the Parmesan is a whole lot of Parmesan and I was a little concerned the rice would end up 'gluggy' but it worked fine and tasted great. The lemon flavour through the rice is perfect.

      Wonderful lemon flavour! I used brown basmati rice and did not add the salt as I thought there was enough in the Parmesan cheese. I used shredded Parmesan. Just made half a recipe for the two of us and we enjoyed every mouthful. It had a wonderful rissoto rice consistancy and went very well with our baked halibut. Thanks for posting Annelies, I will be making this one again!!

      This is a quick and tasty side. I did use 1 cup of grated cheese equaling 4 ounces. Lots of lemon flavor. I found this to be almost like a risotto creamy and fresh Oh and comforting. I did skip the salt. Thanks.
