Directions

In a large pot, over Medium heat, cook the ground beef. Drain the liquid from the cooked beef (if any). (I use a colander) Stir in the chopped onions, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ground beef back into the vegetables. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, V8, beef broth, red and white beans. Season with the salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and thyme cayenne pepper, chili powder and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Taste for salt and pepper. When the soup has 10 minutes left to simmer, add the ditalini pasta. Simmer for 10 more minutes or until pasta is done. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator or in the freezer.
