The original Paella's are made with sausage and/or Shrimp. Put mussels on top just before you serve and steam. The final product is as pretty as it is good.

I really appreciate your Nutrition Value List for this recipe. As soon as I saw that 66% of my daily sodium needs would be used in this recipe, I decided to skip it. Thanks for the idea. I will try to find a similar recipe with a lower sodium level. I have high blood pressure and a prediabetic condition so I must be very careful.

This is a really easy and really tasty recipe. I have rcommended it to several people and everyone has liked it. Add a salad or a veggie and in no time at all you can have a good dinner.

This was so easy to make and delicious, instead of using a box of rice mix I made my own and used Rotel instead of plain tomato's, can't wait to make it for company.

My husband and I really enjoy this recipe. There's virtually no prep work and yet it tastes just as good (or better!) than many more labor-intensive recipes.
