"May increase the amount of V8 next time; found it to be a little flavorless. Felt it was a healthy choice, though."
"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!"
"With crispy baked chicken...lol!"
"This was amazing! I made some changes based on preference-omitted mushrooms and celery, added shallots and zucchini. I used 3 cloves minced garlic and more V-8 (about 1-1/4 cups). I also added crushed red pepper flakes and a pinch of Italian Seasoning. I made this as a side dish with some cripy baked chicken and sourdough rolls. Loved it and will make again, thanks for sharing!"
"Using V8 is much better than canned tomatoes"
