This simple sausage paella recipe is easy to make and saves on dishes because it can be made entirely in one pan! Perfect for busy weeknights!

I love one pan meals! I mean, really, we can’t be the only ones who have more dishes dirty every single day than room in the dishwasher?! And this simple sausage paella is so delicious, the whole one pan thing is just a bonus!

Paella technically means ‘leftovers’. So you could easily replace the veggies, sausages and/or the rice with leftovers and just reduce the cooking time of this sausage paella accordingly.

Either way, this dish is sure to please. And with only one pan, even the cook will be happy!

You could always leave out the peas like I did if your family doesn’t favor them. And if you have a strong preference you could even substitute the yellow pepper for any of the other colors of bell pepper.
