If you like the casual feel of a paella supper, it’s time to discover fideuà (fid-AY-wah), a noodle-based Catalan dish that’s got all the satisfying elements of paella, plus a crunchy topping. We’ve revised the traditional fideuà recipe so that it can be made in any home kitchen (no special noodles or paella pan necessary, though if you have one, great). Add some tapas, a fresh fava bean salad, and melt-in-your-mouth baked peaches for dessert, and you’re all set to throw an authentic Spanish feast.
