Paella 'a l'Americaine
80 mins (prep 35, cooking 45)

8-10 servings
A whole rice dinner in one pot, Spanish style, that's the paella, and a hearty, savory family or party dish it is, too. You can put anything into a paella you want, as long as you have rice, saffron, garlic, and paprika for your base; the trimmings can be chicken or rabbit or fish, lobster, snails, mussels, sausage, or even squid. But the key to its success is the rice, which must be perfectly cooked, with the grains separate and slightly al dente--and for success you need either the fat Italian rice, the short-grained Spanish rice, or "converted" rice. This recipe is from Julia & Company. Don't even try it without a paella pan. :)
