1 Tbsp

1 medium

1 medium
carrot- chopped
1 medium
rid celery- chopped
2 clove
garlic- minced
1/2 lb
90% lean ground beef
1 tsp

14 1/2 oz
can fire roasted diced tomatoes
4 c
chicken broth, low salt
1/2 c
uncooked small shell pasta
15 1/2 oz
can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
3 Tbsp
grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp
black pepper
14 1/2 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.
Add the ground beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the chili powder; cook 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are softened and the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the broth and pasta; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the pasta is tender and the soup thickens slightly, about 8 minutes.
Add the beans and tomato sauce and heat though. Remove from the heat, then sprinkle with the cheese and pepper. Yields generous 1 cup per serving.
Points Plus: 6pts per one cup serving
