Roasted Tomato Paella

This one-pan short grain rice dish (not really paella, but in the spirit of paella) is smoky (paprika), tangy/sweet (tomatoes), chewy (edges), and soft (arborio rice).

.....sweet smoked paprika from Aphrodisia on Bleecker St., for a whopping one dollar. the smell of this stuff makes this all worth it.

.... we added some sliced roasted garlic chicken sausages to beef things up a bit



  1. class act. those are some nice looking tomatoes

  2. aaaaah too many tomatoes. did you use saffron? paella is my specialty but I like to make it with seafood (scallops, shrimp, mussels, sometimes lobster) and a little chorizo.
