  3. Add Campbell’s Real Spanish Soup base, corn and capsicum. Cover and simmer over low heat for approximately 20 minutes. Do not stir.
  4. Add calamari rings, pushing down into mixture a little. Scatter peas and chopped tomatoes over, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes. Add a little extra water if required.
  5. Add prawns to the top of the rice pushing in a little. Cook covered for about 7 minutes until prawns are no longer translucent.

If you wish to use mussels, push them into the rice mixture with the prawns at step 4. Do not stir after step 2 to achieve the lovely crust on the bottom that paella is renowned for.
