Quick, One-Dish Paella Recipe


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 cup Arborio rice (risotto/short-grain rice)
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup Tomato Basil Sauce
  • 1 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp
  • 3 cup vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup Green Giant peas
  • 3/4 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined, defrosted if frozen. (To save time, purchase frozen shrimp that are already peeled and deveined.)
  • 24 mussels, cleaned
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large skillet with a lid, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until translucent. Add red bell pepper and cook another 2 minutes. Add rice and sauté until it begins to turn golden.
  2. Add wine and stir until wine evaporates. Lower the heat and add Victoria® Tomato Basil Sauce, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour vegetable stock into the same pan as the rice and vegetables and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover with lid and simmer on low for 20 minutes. Uncover and add seafood and peas. Give it a light stir. Cover again and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until seafood is cooked thoroughly.
  4. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges. Serve hot.
