I made several changes to the original recipe for this pasta and vegetable toss to better suit our family's tastes. With its pretty color and fresh flavor, the meatless main dish is a favorite at our house. —Ann Heinonen of Howell, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2014

"May increase the amount of V8 next time; found it to be a little flavorless. Felt it was a healthy choice, though."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2010

"I needed about 1 1/4 cups of the V8 juice. The initial amount cooked off too quickly. Fresh and healthy dish that we would make again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2010

"Using V8 is much better than canned tomatoes"
