Italian Rice with Lemon

2 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 cup aborio rice
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs olive oil
1 egg, beaten
1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
juice of 1 lemon

In a medium pot, bring the water and salt to a boil over high heat.
Add the rice and stir. Reduce the heat to medium and allow the rice to boil for 15 minutes, or until tender. When done lower the heat to as low as possible.
Add the olive oil and butter to the rice and mix. Add the beaten egg to the rice and mix well. Add the grated cheese and lemon juice to the rice and stir. Cook over very low heat for 3-4 minutes. Serve with additional cheese and lemon if desired.
