It is officially Autumn and it is getting cooler. That means that it is the season for soups! I love really creamy soups, but they can kill you on calories. This is a favorite broth based soup. There will be more to come when I get around to actually typing them out.Ingredients:
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 16 oz can garbonzo beans
1 16 oz can kidney beans
1 c. small pasta shells
1 c. sliced fresh carrots
1 c. sliced celery
1 c. chopped onion
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
1/4 c. olive oil
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
5 c. beef broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced

Saute onions. celery, and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.

In a skillet brown the ground beef, drain. Stir into soup along with beans and pasta. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes.
Serves 15
