"O.k. I'm going to admit this right off,the original recipe was found on another recipe site. :)I've made it several times and it was good,but always felt something was missing.So,I change the tomato sauce to a vegetable juice and added some seasonings.Then I thought it was good enough to post here.If you are watching your sodium,use Low Sodium juice. And as usual if the amount of my seasonings aren't to your liking,please change them.I listed the servings as 4, if your serving this with a salad and garlic bread you could get 6 servings.Posted to "ZAZZ" on 10/23/13."

Very good and easy! We used whole wheat egg noodles and 12 ounces of V-8 but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
