    IJustThrewItTogether's Note:

    My dad is from Spain and growing up we had the "real" thing for every holiday. I have been able to serve this to my extended family with no one the wiser and it is A LOT QUICKER AND EASIER than the traditional one and you don't need the Paella pan.

      Very good and so simple. I added a mirepoix after removing the peppers & substituted white wine for the water. It added a very nice depth of flavor to the dish. Will definitely make again ... it was a hit!

      Just made this today and served it to friends. They LOVED this paella. We've all traveled a lot - with husband's employers and for pleasure. It was SO easy and delicious. I added 2 small links of Spanish choriso right before I added added the shrimp and scallops and stirred it in. Super easy and moist.
