  • Incredible!

    This was awesome the day I made it, but since I added the pasta to it and stored the left overs in the fridge, all the liquid got absorbed and it was no longer a soup. Next time I think I'll add another V-8, and also some more spices to kick up the flavor a little bit. - 10/23/07

  • Great recipe but cook pasta and drain. Do not add to pot but serve in separate bowl to be added as desired, otherwise when leftovers are chilled pasta will absorbe all the liquid and become soggy with no broth. - 6/20/11
