Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Meanwhile soak the saffron in 2 tbsp hot water, if using.
Add the peppers and garlic, cook for 3-4 minutes.
Stir in the rice, wine, hot stock, saffron mixture and seasoning. Bring to the boil and simmer, stirring occasionally until almost all the liquid has disappeared.
Add the seafood, leftover meat and spicy sausage. Cover, turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes, taking the lid off every few minutes to give it a stir.
Add the peas and cook for a further few minutes until the liquid has evaporated. Season and serve immediately.
Top Tip: As rice is relatively cheap, it is easy to get in the habit of throwing too much into the pot. Your standard tea mug is a handy tool for measuring uncooked rice. A full cup of rice will feed 4 adults and ¼ mug feeds 1 adult.
