Paella with Pasta (Fideua`)

We adapted this recipe from many which toast the pasta as the first step.  We used fresh pasta and didn't want to toast it.  Start by sauteing 1/4C each diced onion and celery.  Add 2 cloves minced garlic.  When the garlic is toasted, add one diced boneless, skinless chicken breast and some sliced spicy sausage.  Cook gently until the chicken is cooked through.  At the same time, add the fresh pasta to boiling water for no more than a minute.  Add 8 oz. of clam broth to the chicken/sausage. When it reaches a boil add seafood ( we used scallops, shrimp and haddock along with a drained can of chopped clams).  Add the drained pasta to the mix and continue to simmer until most of the juice is absorbed by the pasta.  Add a chopped tomato and some green herb (parsley or thyme perhaps)  Serve with a crusty bread and a chilled white or rose wine.
