Mangia Monday: Spanish Paella

This Monday be inspired by a flavorful Spanish paella dish.  The recipe almost always has some sort of rice, tomato, and garlic with bold and spicy flavors, but from that base there are hundreds of different things to add to make the dish your own.  The traditional Valencian dish can be filled with shrimp, lobster, pork, or vegetables - but is certainly not limited to that.  Paella has a fascinating history - this article from Saveur lays out the art of making this phenomenal Spanish dish and includes a recipe that complements the traditional dish!
