I make this one from Sarah*H often:
Olive Garden's Pasta Fagiole
Ingredients: 1 lb ground beef 1 cup diced onion 1 cup julienned carrot 3 stalks celery, chopped (1 cup) 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans diced tomatoes 1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans (with liquid) 1 (15 ounce) can great northern beans (with liquid) 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce 1 (12 ounce) can v-8 vegetable juice 1 teaspoon vinegar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon oregano 1 teaspoon basil 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon thyme 1/2 lb ditali pasta
Directions: 1 Brown beef in a large stock pot over medium heat-drain off fat. 2 Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic and saute for 10 minutes. 3 Add remaining ingredients, except pasta, and simmer for 1 hour. 4 After 50 minutes boil pasta to al dente. 5 Drain well. 6 Add pasta to the large pot of soup and simmer for 10 minutes.
**I typically don't add the pasta because I've found it soaks up all the broth when I have leftovers. But it's delicious either way!**
