I've made this for family, friends and coworkers and it always receives rave reviews. The arborio rice give it a better mouth feel than short grain rice and the lemon undertones really brightens the flavor.

Notes:
-Use a heavy 2qt saucepan.
-While short grain rice can probably be substituted, the arborio can absorb a lot more liquid without becoming mushy.
-I use a vegetable peeler to peel the lemon. It gives you long strips which are easier to locate and remove at the end and it peels thinly to eliminate the pith.
