 Hearty beef and pasta soup

My grandmother would say that this soup is 'good for what ails you.' I would agree wholeheartedly. Broken hearts, terrible days at work and all manner of other things can be soothed, if not cured, by this soup. It's truly marvellous stuff, and much greater than the sum of its parts.

It's also a forgiving recipe, so don't fret if you don't measure something exactly, or have butter beans instead of cannellini beans; this soup will take it all in it's delicious, warming stride.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients:
1 lb lean ground/minced beef
2 whole carrots, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
1 medium onion, diced
2 clove garlic, minced
28 oz can crushed/chopped tomatoes
2 cans (14.5 oz each) beef broth or fresh beef stock
2 whole bay leaves
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 can (15 oz) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup ditalini pasta, uncooked (or similar pasta shape)
Parmesan cheese, grated
