Pasta E Fagioli

2 Tbsp. oil
1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 cup carrots, diced or slivered
1 cup celery, diced
2 cans diced tomatoes (with liquid)
1 can red kidney beans (with liquid)
1 can white beans (with liquid)
44 oz. beef stock
1 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. pepper
3 tsp. parsley
1 1/2 tsp. hot sauce
24 oz spaghetti sauce
8 oz. dry pasta (small sized)

Brown beef in oil. Add onions, carrots, celery and tomatoes. Allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, except pasta, allow to simmer for 30 minutes to hours...add pasta about 20 minutes or so before serving.

*note* use a huge pot for this. It makes a lot.
I usually allow mine to simmer for 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to blend flavors
