Fideua is basically a version of paella that is made with pasta instead of rice. With carrots, garlic, bell peppers, mushrooms, and leeks, this dish is bursting with flavor. Instead of the traditional seafood that is so popular in traditional paella, this recipe features chicken for a bit of lean protein. This dish reheats beautifully, so you can bring the leftovers to the office for lunch or enjoy them the next day for dinner.

This is a family friendly dish that is very good. My husband and I enjoyed it and so did our kids. I stir fried prepared spaghetti noodles and that worked just fine. I like that this recipe is done in under an hour. It is great for busy evenings.
