A pasta recipe, especially one that copycats Olive Garden Restaurant, is worth a try. Are you asking what ditali pasta is? It is, “Small, short-cut pasta tubes that are approximately 3/8″ long. They are often used in soups. A smaller version of ditali is known as ditalini. Elbow macaroni and tubetti pasta may be substituted.” according to recipetips.com.

* 1 pound ground beef
* 1 small onion, diced (1 cup)
* 1 large carrot, julienned (1 cup)
* 3 stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 14.5-ounce cans diced tomatoes
* 1 15-ounce can red kidney beans (with liquid)
* 1 15-ounce can great northern beans (with liquid)
* 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
* 1 12-ounce can V-8 juice
* 1 tablespoon white vinegar
* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
* 1 teaspoon oregano
* 1 teaspoon basil
* 1/2 teaspoon pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon thyme
* 1/2 pound ditali pasta
- Brown your beef or ground turkey.
- Having no clue what a julienned carrot I just made mine in small pieces. Add your diced carrots, onion, celery and garlic. Add that to your meat and slow cook for about 10 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients. And simmer on low for an hour. (Save the pasta for the last step.)
- Cook your pasta in boiling water. You don’t want it fully cooked as it will get mushy. I again didn’t have ditali pasta so I used Penne. Add that to your soup and let simmer again for an additional 10 minutes so the flavors can blend.
