Pasta Fagioli Soup

If you've ever had the pasta fagioli soup at Olive Garden, then you are sure to love this soup! It is supposedly the recipe they use and it really does taste just like it. We had it for dinner tonight with some garlic bread and it was fantastic! Warning: it makes a lot so you probably want to half the recipe unless you are feeding the neighborhood.

2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
4 carrots, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 28oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 16oz. can kidney beans
1 16oz. can white kidney beans
3 10oz. cans beef stock (vegetable stock works too)
3 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. pepper
5 tsp. fresh parsely, coarsely chopped
1 20oz. jar spaghetti sauce
8oz. macaroni pasta

Brown ground beef and onion. Put all ingredients, except pasta, in crock pot on high for 6-8 hours. Add pasta to soup mixture 1 hour before serving. Serve with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
