My adult children adore this recipe and look forward to eating it when they come to our house for lunch on Sundays after church. I do some preparation for this recipe before leaving for church on Sunday morning and finish it after church. That is why we call it Sunday Paella. — Linda Rhoads, Lebanon, Missouri
