Tonight, I made Paella – not an official Paella, like from a recipe, but one of my own design.
In a saucepan, I prepared chopped onions, peas, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, and red beans in white cooking wine and marsala.
In a small pot, I boiled two cups of water and prepared yellow rice. Once the rice was fully cooked, and the liquid had evaporated, I blended the rice and the first mixture in a big bowl. I placed that bowl into the warming drawer on three, while I prepared the chicken and sausage.
Finally, I prepared slices of sweet sausage and chicken cutlets in the original saucepan, with a little bit of butter and white wine. 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and Voila!
Now, this is not a traditional recipe for Paella. I decided to pair this meal with a glass of Pinot Grigio since I used chicken and sausage, but you could drink a nice Merlot as well. I do not drink red wines.
