Pasta E Fagioli Soup (Copy Cat of Olive Garden’s popular soup)

This soup is honestly one of the best soups I have ever made.  It is so easy to throw together and the flavors are so fresh.  If you dice your vegis while your meat is browning, you should be able to get this soup into the crockpot in less than fifteen minutes. 

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, finely diced
2 carrots, finely diced
2 stalks celery, finely diced
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can cannellini beans (or white kidney beans), drained and rinsed
1 (26 oz.) container beef stock (or 3 cups)
1 jar (24 oz.) of Barilla Marinara Sauce
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup uncooked ditalini pasta (or your favorite pasta shape)
Salt, to taste (about ½ tbsp. kosher salt)
1.  Brown hamburger
2.  While hamburger cooks, dice the onion, celery, and carrots
3.  Place all ingredients except pasta into a crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours
4.  Add pasta for last 30 minutes
