the most perfect fall soup


ingredients
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
1 medium sized zucchini
carrots {i only had baby ones so i used about 8 baby carrots or you can use 1 large carrot}
1/2 c celery 
2 cans beef stock
1 can of stewed tomatoes 
1 can diced tomatoes {i used italian style but, plain would be fine too.}
1 can white kidney beans 
1 can red kidney beans 
1 cup cooked pasta {i used what i had the the cupboard. i would suggest a shaped pasta}
fresh parmesan 

spices {i tend to eye ball my spices. so use as much or as little as you like!}
garlic powder
onion powder
red pepper flakes 
dried oregano 
celery salt 
salt & pepper

directions
+ brown your meat in a skillet until cooked.
+ chop zucchini, celery and carrots place in crockpot or pot.
+ pour beef stock, beans, and tomatoes in crockpot or pot.
+ now add all your spices and stir well.
+ if your cooking in a crockpot, cook on low for 6-8 hours. if your cooking on the stove in a pot, cook on low heat for 2-4 hours. {just long enough for all flavors to simmer and get yummy!} 
+ 30 min before you want to eat cook your pasta and than add to soup. let simmer for 30 min. 

&& now dish it up and add some fresh parmesan on top. ENJOY! {we had this with crescent rolls...it was yummy!} it makes a lot so, invite friends over or plan for leftovers!
