Pasta de Fagioli

My "take" on my fav. Olive Garden Soup
My husband is not a big soup kind of guy. And he likes this soup!
I am not even going to tell him it is a low fat/healthy soup. (lol)
This makes a LARGE pot of soup, perfect to share with a friend.

1 lb. Extra Lean ground beef; cooked & seasoned
1 C. Shredded Carrot
1 C. Chopped Celery
1 C. Fresh Zucchini; diced
1/2 C. Onion, chopped
2 (14.5 oz.) Hunt's Diced Tomato's: Basil, Garlic & Oregano style
2 (14.5 oz.) 99% Fat Free Beef Broth
1 (15.5oz.) Red Kidney Beans;drained
1 (15.5oz.) Great Northern Beans;drained
2 (8 oz.) Hunts Tomato sauce: Basil, Garlic & Oregano style
1 (24 oz.) Hunt's Traditional Spaghetti Sauce
10 0z. pkg. Small Pasta;uncooked
2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
2 tsp. ground Oregano
4 TBSP Frank's Hot Sauce
Pepper

Place the fresh veggies in large pot and saute foe 2 minutes. Add in the cooked meat plus all other ingredients, except the pasta. Simmer for 15 minutes. Then add in pasta and cook on low for 40 more minutes.
Now all you need is a side of bread sticks!

Soup with a smile,
Lark

I have a recipe for this but mine doesn't have the spaghetti sauce in it. That sounds really cool and I bet it works really well in here!! Neat idea Lark!

This looks fabulous! I like to get their soup there. Strange, I know, but when I have to go there getting soup keeps my eating in line!
I am going to bookmark this to make someday. I probably have it all here now to make it!
