Olive Garden Recipe (copy cat)

Olive Garden Recipe
Pasta E Fagioli Soup
2 lbs ground beef                       3 (10 oz) cans beef broth
1 onion, chopped                       3 tsp oregano or 
3 garlic cloves, minced                or Italian seasoning
3 ribs celery, chopped               2 tsp pepper
3 carrots, chopped                     5 tsp parsley
2 (28 oz) cans diced tomatoes   1 tsp Tabasco sauce
1 (16 oz) can red kidney            1 (26 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
    beans                                      8 ounces pasta  
1 (16 oz) can white kidney
  beans drained
Brown hamburger, drain.  Add onion and garlic and saute, then transfer
to a large slow cooker.  Add all remaining ingredients except pasta.  Cook on LOW for 7 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.  During the last 30 minutes on high, or 1 hour on low, add pasta.  Serve with grated Parmesan on top.
This was the most delicious new soup recipe I have tried in a long time.  I bought 365 Days of Slow Cooking by Karen Petersen a while back and am slowing trying some of the recipes.  I would highly recommend this one.
