This was a perfect quick recipe for this snowy winter day. I used to 12oz cans of V-eight juice, added a little onion powder, and that was all. Love it!! Can't go wrong with this one!!

We had this delicious soup tonight and declare it a winner. Super easy to prepare, it goes together fast. I used a package of Hormel roast beef. The only change I made was to use small macaroni instead of small penne pasta since I did not have any. Worked just fine. We will have this again. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

This is super easy and fast to make. I did add a dash of cayenne pepper for a bit of zip. The second time I made it I substituted barley for the pasta. Delicious.

Love this recipe. I love the way the beef is shredded and not in big chunks and is very tender. I make a beef roast french dip the meal before and then used the leftovers in this soup. I also used some pepper seasonings and worchestshire sauce. Excellent.

The best vegetable soup I have ever had. I loved the pasta and the beef is very tender.

One word. Bland. I. Added one can of chicken broth and a bag of baby spinach plus ome grated cheese for flavor. That made it better, but still not great. I wouldn't make this again...there's much better vegetable beef soups. On the positive side, it was quick and easy to make.

This recipe is really good. However, I do not use the noodles. I also double the meat and vegetables because I have a large family. I make this all of the time, and my family loves it!

I make this soup for my family every couple of weeks!
