This Italian Vegetable Soup is slam packed with goodness and flavor.
This soup is one I have been making since I was a newlywed. It has been a staple recipe over the years, and makes an appearance every year.
This soup uses cannellini beans, which are basically a white kidney bean. If you don’t have them, or can’t find them, you can simply substitute regular red kidney beans.

Italian Vegetable Soup
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 carrots, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 1 can, 15 oz. tomato sauce
- 1 can, 15 oz. fire roasted, diced tomatoes
- 2 cups beef broth, you may need more, see instructions
- 1 Tb parsley
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp basil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 1/2 c frozen green beans
- 3/4 – 1 c small pasta, ditalini, macaroni, mini-farfalle, or other bit-sized pasta
- Parmesan cheese, for serving
- To begin, cook the ground beef and onion together in a Dutch oven, until the meat is browned and the onion is tender. Drain off any excess grease from the beef, if you need to.
- Add the minced garlic in, and cook for another minute or two.
- Add in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, beef broth, carrots, celery, parsley, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
- Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low-medium and cook for 15-20 minute, or until the carrots and celery are almost cooked.
- Add in the remaining ingredients, except the parmesan cheese.
- Cook until the pasta is cooked through. The pasta sometimes likes to fall to the bottom and try to stick, so be sure to stir this often as the soup finishes cooking.
- NOTE: If your pasta absorbs too much liquid, you may need additional beef broth to thin this out,
- Serve, topped with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
