“Not really paella, but I couldn't think of another name! A great dish I made up tonight, using ingredients on hand. Use whatever you like - I left out a few things of this version and it was great! My 2 year old (very picky) put the first bite in his mouth and said "YUM!" and my husband went back for 4ths! Add as much lemon juice as you like, my husband liked less than I did, so letting guests decide their amount by serving lemon wedges or juice on the side. This amount I made, would serve 4.”
