    The pic looks yummy. Keep meaning to try it. Normally I do paella. Is this similar in taste?

    It makes about 5 portions so wouldn't be that bad really ( and hubby normally pinches most of the sausage anyway)

    Thanks x

    Hi Lisa

    No the taste is very very different as are the textures. Jambalaya is spicy and generally uses a long grain rice (I use basmati) and is full of vegetables with a little meat or prawns etc whereas Paella uses a Paella rice which is very different in texture and has a nice saffron taste and is generally not spicy and generally uses fewer vegetables and more seafood.

    Both , however , are equally yummy ;)
