Make a big pot of goodness and please the entire family and special guests with the great Italian flavors and wholesomeness of this classic dish. First brown 3 pounds of ground beef, then in the same pot cook onion, celery and garlic in olive oil. Add beef broth, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, thyme, basil, oregano and parsley. After it’s simmered for an hour, add cooked ditalini pasta and kidney beans and heat through. Serve big bowls with plenty of toasted bread. A great choice when you have a hungry crowd!
