  1. Recipe:
    Makes Tons

    1lb ground lean turkey (I substituted turkey for beef so it would be heart healthy)
    1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
    1 large carrot, chopped (1 cup)
    2 stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    28 oz can crushed tomatoes
    15 oz can tomato sauce
    15 oz beef broth
    15 oz can red kidney beans (with liquid)
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp pepper
    8 oz dry ditalini pasta
    Toppings: Shredded parmesan cheese

    1. Brown ground beef in a large soup pot over medium-high heat until no longer pink, lightly seasoning with salt & pepper. Drain then return to the pot. Add onions, carrots, celery, and garlic, lightly season with salt & pepper, then saute for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the pasta, then simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally.
    2. When the soup has 10 minutes left to simmer, cook pasta in salted boiling water until just under al dente. Drain then add to the soup and simmer for 5-10 more minutes. Remove parmesan cheese rind, then serve.
