cup chopped celery
2
garlic cloves, minced
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
(19-oz.) can cannellini beans, drained, rinsed

Directions

  • 1 Brown ground beef in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.

  • 3 Add all remaining ingredients except macaroni; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 minutes to blend flavors.
  • 4 Add uncooked macaroni; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until macaroni is of desired doneness, stirring occasionally.
Tips  

Cannellini beans are large white Italian kidney beans. They have a softer texture and milder flavor than dark red kidney beans. Popular in Tuscany, cannellini beans are used in warm salads and vegetable soups.

In this soup, Great Northern beans can be used in place of the cannellini beans.

This hearty soup is a meal in itself. Complete the menu with soft breadsticks and lemon sorbet.
