This recipe make 9 QUARTS of soup which is a ton. I would suggest cutting the recipe in half unless you are feeding a ton of people. It a very simple but really yummy soup. My family loves it! Great for left overs!

3 t. oil (I don't add this ....I can't make myself cook hamburger in oil)
2 lbs hamburger
12 ounces of onion chopped
14 ounces carrots silvered
14 ounces celery diced
48 ounces diced tomatoes
2 c cooked red kidney beans
2 c cooked white kidney beans
88 ounces beef stock
3 t oregano
2 1/2 t pepper
5 t parsley (fresh chopped)
1 1/2 t Tabasco sauce
48 ounces spaghetti sauce
8 ounces dry pasta

Saute beef in oil in large 10 qt pot until beef starts to brown. Add onions, carrots, celery and tomatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain and rinse beans and add to the pot. Also add beef stock, oregano, pepper, tabasco, spaghetti sauce and noodles. Add chopped parsley. Simmer until celery and carrots are tender about 45 minutes. Makes 9 qts of soup!!!

Once again my pictures of the soup were deleted so I will add some as soon as possible.
