Heat oil in medium, nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in garlic and cook until aroma is released (do not brown). Stir in rice; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
Stir in broth and evaporated milk. Reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring frequently, for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender but firm to the bite (mixture will be creamy and more stirring will be needed as it becomes thicker). Remove from heat; stir in peas and lemon zest, if desired.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with Parmesan cheese.
