AAbsolutely superb. I added scallops, mussels and more clams to the recipe. It was an instant hit!

Served this recipe to a monthly dinner group and it was a hit! Recipe was easy to follow. Be prepared, this makes a good hearty serving and filled up a casserole dish easily to the top.I substituted 1 cup of clam juice with the chicken broth and it kept it moist. Will definitely serve again!

This was good but a bit dry. Next time I will increase the brooth and add more chicken and sausage.

My sister made this...she used scallops instead of clams, yellow instead of white rice, omitted the saffron and used about 4 1/2 cups instead of 5 cups was I can't wait to make it...thanks

It was sooo easy. I was a little more generous with the saffron because I love it so much. Even my kids ate this all up with-out a single complaint about there being rice in it! They usually complain about rice.

I really liked it, though, it was hard getting the rice, just right in the oven, mine was still too firm after more than an hour of cooking. I'll definitely try it again and see if I can get it right.

To save on cooking time in the oven and make sure rice gets cooked through, i cooked the basmati rice in a rice cooker first. I added about 1 cup of the broth to the rice mixture. I also used 1 can stewed tomatoes. Used italian sausage instead of chroizo. I also soaked the saffron in 1tsp of warm water before adding. Put all mixture in a large baking dish, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I did not have peas or clams, but i added a cup of stir fried snap peas and put them on top of the Paella before serving. Will try his reciep again, and add 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp paprika
