Oh So Good Minestrone Soup

This is the first time I have ever actually eaten Minestrone Soup. But I have to say, I'll definitely make it again! I mean really, 8 veggies in 1 soup?!?!? And my family will eat it? Excellent!
Oh So Good Minestrone Soup
1/2 lb lean ground beef [ I used about 3/4 pound]
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 large onion, diced

1/4 cup diced green pepper< I say optional, since I couldn't taste it at all>
1 15oz cans diced tomatoes
1 8z cans tomato sauce
2 large carrots, sliced
3 cups beef broth [or 3 cups water + 3 tsp beef bouillon granules]
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 can green beans, drained
1/2 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 can garbanzo or navy beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup small pasta

Brown meat with celery, onion, and green pepper. Drain fat. Add everything to Large pot except pasta. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 45 minutes. 15 minutes before desired serving time, add pasta and simmer for about 15 minutes or till tender. Top with fresh grated Parmesan. [I think Mozzarella would be good too!]
Serves 6-8
