Great recipe! I'm feeling under the weather and did not feel like eating much; but this was perfect. I did not boil the noodles in water first and just boiled them in the tomato juice. It was great! Thank you for posting.

Had this often growing up as a child in Kansas. One of my all time favorite food memories. Plain old elbow macaroni and tomato juice but another favorite now is to use different shaped pastas and V-8. My two granddaughters love this too! Some grated Parmesan or other cheese is an added bonus.

I didn't have very high expectations for this one. Tomato juice and noodles? How good could it be? But, I had the ingredients on hand and didn't feel like going out in the cold to get anything else at the store. I had 2 cups of tomato juice so I measured out 1 cup of dreamfield elbow macaroni. I didn't measure the butter. I probably used 2 teaspoons, one when cooking the pasta and the other when I added the pasta to the tomato juice. It was more than enough. Probably 2 good sized servings. Topped it with salt, fresh ground pepper and shaved parm. Perfect comfort food for a cold day. Thanks!
