A Spanish dish that varies from region to region. This one has sausage, chicken, seafood, rice, and vegetables. A delicious one-pot meal. Please use a paella pan.

This was stellar! Definitely worth buying a Paella pan for since I know I'll be making this often. I only made a few alterations - no peas and I added a bag of scallops, I also left the shrimp unshelled. The flavour and texture were amazing and all the different seafoods were all cooked perfectly at 32 minutes.

Made this for a large party and it was a hit. I omitted the pimientos and used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I added mussels and cashews. Yummy!!! Found perfect paella pan at Bed Bath and Beyond for very reasonable price.

This was a first for me, and have to say that it will be repeated. The flavor was outstanding and everyone enjoyed themselves.
