      The recipe said "simplified" and did not say authentic Spanish paella. Maybe the Maybe the recipe should be called "rice with shrimp and sausage." Never had a paella without peppers and onions, whether it be paella with chicken or shrimp.

    Very nice. I added a diced onion to the garlic, and then a pinch of saffron threads, crushed.

    This looks delicious and I will be trying it!......however, having lived in Spain for five years I have to say leaving out the saffron would be a no-no!!....(:........only needs a few strands!

    I used bulk fresh chorizo which broke up in nice small pieces. I used the tomato liquid and just incorporated it into the chicken broth total. I did use approx. 3 cups of chicken broth and cooked for 20-30 min. I don't like crunchy rice. Needed more liquid and low temperature simmering to achieve rice with a tender bite. I didn't have to use any salt or pepper. We enjoyed it. I will make it again.
