MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2014

"I had never made paella before and this was a great recipe to use as a guide. In place of the sausage and chicken I used chopped turkey bacon and a medley of seafood including shrimp, calamari (both rings and tentacles) and mussels. I didn't have cayenne but did use turmeric along with the saffron. My boyfriend tends to get heart burn from peppers so I omitted those all together. I shared some with my parents and they enjoyed it as much as we did!"
