Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli

We had a cold snap here last week, so I made this recipe. I have been making this for many years. It is easy to do and very filling. Serve with bread and a salad.

Olive Garden Pasta E Fagioli

3 tsp. Oil
2 lb. Ground beef
12 oz. Onion; chopped
14 oz. Carrots; slivered
14 oz. Celery; diced
48 oz. Tomatoes; canned, diced
2 C. cooked Red Kidney beans
2 C cooked White kidney beans
88 oz. Beef stock
3 tsp. Oregano
2 1/2 tsp. Pepper
5 tsp. Parsley; (fresh chopped)
1 1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
48 oz. Spaghetti sauce
8 oz. dry pasta Shell macaroni; or other pasta

Sauté beef in oil in large 10-qt. pot until beef starts to brown. Add onions, carrots, celery and tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse beans and add to the pot. Also add beef stock, oregano, pepper, Tabasco, spaghetti sauce, and noodles. Add chopped parsley. Simmer until celery and carrots are tender, about 45 minutes. Makes 9 qts. of soup!
