Risotto ai Limone

We had this dish in a delightful restaurant up the hill from our digs near Massa Lubrense in southern Italy.

  Servings: 4

1 cup Carnaroli rice

4 cups water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

Juice of three lemons

1 Tablespoon chopped parsley

Bring water to boil and add salt. Once boiling, add rice.
In a skillet, melt butter. Add lemon juice and heat. Add cream, but take care not to let it boil.
Once rice is cooked 'al dente', drain. Put it into the lemon/butter/cream mixture and stir.
Add the chopped parsley, stir and serve.

Serving Suggestions:
Serve with grilled Italian sausages.
