1 lb ground beef
4 stalks celery
2 zucchini, sliced and quartered
14-oz can diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chile
4 Bay leaves
1 cup ditalini pasta
Salt & pepper
Brown ground beef. Add remaining ingredients except pasta. Bring to boil then simmer for 30 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Cook pasta according to package instructions but do not add to soup yet.
Allow the soup to cool and the fat rises to the top.
Skim the fat and you have a much healthier soup. Add pasta to this.
