    Made this last night and it was very good. I almost gave it four stars because of how salty it was but decided that it was not the recipe’s fault that I am more sensitive to a salty taste since I rarely use salt. I could have used less of either the ramen noodle seasoning packet or of the onion soup mix but I wanted to make the recipe as is to judge the flavor. The recipe was easy to make. I used V-8 juice and a can of peas and carrots instead of frozen. I will make this again!

    To me this was just ok. Nothing great. It was quick to fix but it's not something I would make again. Maybe using the spicy V8 would help with flavor.

    I love this soup! I have a gluten allergy so I substituted different noodles and the beef seasoning for gluten free options but it was still wonderful and EASY. Great recipe!
