Italian Pasta Soup

Earlier this week I told you about cheesy drop biscuits and that I made them to go with soup at my mom's house. Well, my mom has graciously shared the recipe for that soup that we hope you enjoy too.

6
1 t. olive oil
1 lb. 93% lean ground beef (you could also use sausage!)
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/2 packet dry onion soup mix (if you have onion, dice it up and throw it in there!)
2 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder (if you have fresh garlic mince up a couple of cloves and throw it in there!)
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes (crushed work too!)
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1/4 t. crushed red pepper
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 1/2 t. sugar
1/2 c. water
1 (15 oz.) can beef broth (use any broth you have on hand!)
1 (15 oz.) can french style green beans, drained (any veggies work!)
1 (15 oz.) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed (any beans work!)
8 oz. small pasta (such as shells or macaroni)
Shredded Parmesan for serving, if desired
In a large soup pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef, carrot, onion soup mix, salt and garlic powder and cook, stirring occasionally to break up the beef, until it is no longer pink....
