"Yum! We served as a soup without noodles and it was delicious. We had no baby carrots on hand and instead chopped up 2 regular carrots. Definitely worth making!~ Theresa"

"I enjoyed this alot! I used 3-1/2 cups regular V-8 and 1/2 cup red wine. I added minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, Emeril's Essence, salt, a bay leaf, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of Tabasco.I didn't have the green beans, so added some frozen peas and fresh minced parsley near the end of cooking time to give it something green. It was a bit soupy so I added another teaspoon of tapioca. I used Country Pasta homeade egg noodles. It made alot and we enjoyed every bit of the leftovers. I stirred the noodles into the stew for the leftovers and it sat in the fridge a day before we ate the leftovers and wow they were delicious! Thanks! I will make this again this winter for sure!"
