    Yep. Just take a pie and cover it with rice. It has to be ella rice if you want it to be authentic Piella.

    Paella on the other hand is a Spanish meat, veggie and seafood dish with rice. You would traditionally expect to maybe see rabbit in paella but when a dish travels from Spain all the way over here and over time people try new things. Hence the sausage. It is traditionally cooked in a paella pan specifically designed for paella. Saffron(turmeric for for poor and destitute) is one of the most dominant spices and one of the most expensive because it has to be picked by hand. It's a distant cousin of jambalaya which is a Creole dish. and is typically a little spicier. Then some might think of gumbo but that is more of a soup. Then we can even invite etouffee but that just gets confusing. But all four of those dishes are so very good and should be tried at home with some pie for dessert. .

    It's paella. The name comes from the traditional pan used to cook the dish over an open flame. Rice or chorizo are a traditional ingredient, so are various shellfish and veggies.

    It's more like a big gumbo w/ chicken, chorizo, seafood and the rice soaks up all the broth, and it's cooked on a grill.

    No, Paella is a Spanish rice dish made with short grain rice, chicken, prawns &

    saffron. Sometimes mixed veg is added, and maybe even mussels at the end.
