    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    Found this in the Cooking Light Magazine and while it looks a little complicated, it sounds wonderful. Once I can gather up all the ingredients I can't wait to try this. There's another recipe by this name, but this one sounds quite different. The recipe states that Valencia is a Spanish coastal city where this dish is particularly revered - never having been there I can't say, but do like the thought.

      Excellent! I love paella, and almost never make it at home. This was a wonderful example of the dish, full of flavor. I added 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika with the tomatoes, otherwise made as written. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8
