Remove the sausages with a slotted spoon, cut in half and set aside. Add the onion, garlic, bay leaf and peppers to the pan and cook for 7–8 minutes, stirring occasionally until just beginning to soften. Add the rice, chopped tomatoes and remaining paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Meanwhile, bring the stock to the boil in another pan. Add the saffron to the boiling stock, reduce the heat and simmer for 2–3 minutes. Pour the stock over the rice and tomato mixture in the frying pan. Mix well. Reduce the heat, cover and cook gently for 15–20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and nearly all the liquid has been absorbed. Add the peas to the pan with the sausages, then serve immediately.
