Invented Rice Paella

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Marissa Reedhead

I call this invented because I came up with it in about ten minutes while trying to figure out what to eat for dinner. It's very quick and easy and I think the tomatoes and garlic are what really add the flavour to this dish.

I liked this a lot. I used it as a base recipe to make a risotto, actually. I didn't have any mushrooms but I made it with calamari instead. So it became a main dish versus a side dish. Works very well with calamari!
