This dish is similar to paella, but much quicker to prepare and made with a broken spaghetti noodle called fideos.

Our Bloody Marys look different, but all three use traditional ingredients -- tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, hot-pepper sauce, and salt. Red, yellow, or orange tomatoes give each a unique hue.
