Pasta Fagioli (Pasta Fazool)

I love this soup!,,,I made this vegetarian, but you can add a pound of ground beef for a heartier version!,,,I also used Ditalini pasta but you could use small shells,,,or any other pasta you want for that matter! This is a great dish topped with grated parmesan cheese,,,Enjoy!

2 T olive oil
1 small onion (diced)
2 carrots diced
3 celery ribs diced
1 32 0z box Chicken, Beef or Vegetable broth
2- 14 1/2 oz cans petite diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans (drained
1 can cannellini beans (drained)
1 cup dry ditalini pasta (cooked al dente)
1 t dry ground thyme
salt and pepper
parmesan cheese
saute onion carrot and celery in olive oil until soft
( if adding beef add now until browned)
add broth and tomatoes
then the spices
bring to boil then let simmer about 20-25 minutes
stir in the beans and cooked pasta
let it cook for about 10 more minutes
add more salt and pepper if needed to your taste
