I thought I would try my husbands favorite childhood dish that his mother would make him. I found this recipe on a group I am in and thought this would be perfect!
These are the ing. used.. Beef broth, pasta, marinera sauce, diced canned tomatoes, white beans, kidney beans, tabasco.
Brown the beef then add the chopped carrots, celery and onion and saute for about 8 minutes.
This is with everything added! I also added some garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper.
