Years ago my husband and I were vacationing in France and came across an open market where a fellow from Spain was making paella in a skillet; we've been hooked every since. I love to whip this up for a large group, but if the gathering is small, I know I can easily freeze leftovers for another time. —Joni Hilton, Rocklin, California
