“I just had to add this recipe! My husband and I love it and we absolutely cook it at least once a month..if not more! It can get kind of spicy so beware of how much spice you like and alter the amount! This recipe is based off of one I saw on the Rachael Ray talk show..but I never could find the actual recipe so its just what I can remember from some notes I jotted down!! ** I usually don't have the Saffron and this is just as great without it, so don't fret if you don't have that spice because its outrageously expensive!”
