Hamburger Minestrone Soup

I’m not a big soup fan, but I LOVE this soup. It super filling, nutritious and delicious!

2 cups chopped onions
1 cup sliced celery
2 garlic gloves, minced
1/8 cup vegetable oil
5 cups beef broth
(I just buy the big carton and add water to make 5 cups)
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup sliced carrots
2 teaspoons basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound ground beef
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 can green beans
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can navy beans, drained
(or just two cans of your favorite beans)

In a large pot, sauté onion, celery and garlic until tender. Stir in broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, carrots, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour. In a large pan, cook beef until no longer pink. Drain. Stir beef into soup with zucchini and beans. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Top each serving with parmesan cheese.
