Very tasty and fresh risotto recipe for kids and adults, a great "comfort food" dish but nice enough for a dinner party. My 18 month old loves it! The addition of the lemon zest keeps it light instead of stodgy, so don't skip it! You can substitute a splash of lemon juice if you have no fresh lemons on hand. Ham can also be substited for bacon, canadian bacon, or my personal fav, cubed pancetta. You can also add a clove of chopped or minced garlic in with the onion step, but I find there are enough flavors going on it doesnt really need it.
