I've never had or heard of this before, so I didn't know what to expect. Considering the simplicity of it, I'd say it was alright. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent recipe. I use half the water and substitute the remainder with either chicken, beef or vegetable broth. We love macaroni and so we increase that by 1/2 cup. Have also used V-8 as suggested by anothe reviewer...either way, delicious!! When reheating we add a couple of tablespoons of water to thin it down as it thickens when refrigerated. Thanks for sharing.
My great-grandma has made this as a side dish since I can remember. She just uses a little less water and part of a small can of tomato sauce rather than tomato juice. Her mother made it during the depression and it has been a family favorite ever since. Thanks for taking me back :-)
Thanks for posting this. I wanted something to go with sandwiches so I thought I would give this a try. This was a great start but I did make some modifications to suit our taste - I added one small can of tomato paste for some additional tomato flavor and also some old bay seasoning for a nice "kick". It went over so well that it is now our new favorite soup. No more canned tomato soup for us.
Great! Quick and easy.
This has been my favorite dish for 54 yrs. Glad someone else likes it too.Glad to see it posted.
Andre, Have made a similar to this recipe for years,and we loved it.This is every bit as good as the one we have always eaten,Thanks for your recipe. Darlene
hello Andre, I have finally come on to rate your recipe! Have done it and it is wonderful. Used to make it alot (once a week) as soup of the day in the restaurant I worked for. Have sbstituted the juice with V-8 juice before, or even half V-8 annd half Tomato. Everyone loved it no matter which way. Big seller! P.S. Have joined the site and will post some recipes soon.

If you like watered-down tomato juice, this is the recipe for you. I added some V-8, then a full can of tomato soup to the pot in order to get some taste. Definitely NOT the soup I've eaten in Canadian restaurants. Don't waste your time with this one.
