    Sous Chef Bentley's Note:

    This is it, my first recipe. I've been making this "Paella" for years. It's my husband's favourite. It tastes so good, everyone is always surprised when they hear it was cooked in the Microwave. Adapted from The Canadian Living Cooking Collection Series.

      Even better the next day. We made the whole thing on the stovetop, and added some semi cooked chicken and sausage half way through cooking and let it simmer for about an hour in total. We also used brown long grain rice and added a half cup extra of stock. Thanks for posting this easy, tasty recipe!

      This was very good. I added shrimp and substituted the italian sausage for spicy polish sausage by Hilshire. I also added crushed red pepper for spice.

      A very nice recipe, even though I toned down the 'spicy' factor considerably (health concerns)...Even so, if you like 'spicy', I'm certain you'll LOVE this one...Just one TIP for folks that post a 'microwave' recipe...PLEASE post the 'wattage' of the microwave you used, so that the rest of us can adjust the cooktimes of your recipe, so we won't overcook or undercook your 'creation'...Thank you for posting this recipe!
