Pasta Fagioli Soup

While there are a few more cold days before Spring arrives, you may want to try this delicious soup.    I sometimes use 2 links of chicken sausage in place of the ground beef.  It looks like a long list of ingredients, but it goes together quickly.  If you don't like all the herbs, omit those that you don't care for.  I hope you enjoy one of our favorite soups!

1 can Great Northern beans, drained
1 lb. ground beef, browned & drained
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans beef broth (I use chicken broth)
2 14.5 oz. cans diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon, pepper
1/4 teaspoon, marjoram
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, optional
1 teaspoon, dried basil
1 teaspoon, dried oregano
3 cups of cooked small pasta, like ditalini

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT pasta, and put in slow cooker.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.  Add the cooked pasta before serving & stir to combine.  To garnish, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
