Ingredients

  • 1

    pound extra lean ground beef, browned and drained.

  • 1

    cup chopped onion

  • 1

    cup chopped carrots

  • 1/2

    cup chopped celery

  • 1

    can (14-15 ounce) diced tomatoes with juice

  • 1

    can ( 14-15 ounce) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1

    can ( 14-15 ounce) white beans, rinsed and drained

  • 4

    cups beef broth

  • 1

    jar (24-26 ounce) tomato basil mainara or pasta sauce

  • 1 - 1/2

    teaspoons oregano

  • 3/4

    teaspoon hot pepper sauce

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pepper

  • 1 - 1/4

    cups dry pasta (i used fusilli, but shells or dilating would work well) cooked separately according to package directions

  • grated parmesan cheese optional for serving

Directions

Stir together the cooked and drained ground beef, onion, carrots, celery, tomatoes, beans, broth, pasta sauce, oregano, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or until the vegetable are as tender as you like them. When ready to serve, stir the cooked pasta into the soup. Serve with the grated parmesan if desired (hint/ to speed up the cooking process, I added the onion, carrots, and celery, as I browned the hamburger, so it partially cooked, before adding everything to the slow cooker.) (would also be awesome with spicy italian sausage)
