This is a great "base" for a great jambalaya...I modified it quite a bit- I got rid of the celery and peas completely. I added about 5 strips of thick cut bacon (chopped) and fried that with the veggies in the beginning...after the bacon was just about cooked I threw in the rice and let the rice fry on it's own for a bit. I then added the remaining ingredients. Being a fan of spicy food, 1/8 tsp. of cayenne just wasn't enough, I did more like 1/4 teaspoon. I also (like almost everyone else) decided to use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I don't like overcooked shrimp, so I used raw shrimp...I have a feeling that cooking already cooked shrimp would make them rubbery. Anyhow, the dish turned out fantastic! I will be making this again!
