    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    This is a healthy, flavorful family meal. To turn this dish into a party-friendly paella, you can add 1/4 t. saffron with the rice. Then, 5 minutes before the rice is done, you can add 3/4 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp. This gives this recipe a bit of versatility.

      This was very good! We do not drink so I substituted white COOKING wine. I had no peas (family doesn't care for) and forgot the parsley. This will be made again and maybe next time I'll slip the peas in. Thank you for sharing.Made for THE GROOVY GASTROGNOMES of ZWT5 (Family Pick).
