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.
