1. In a large stockpot, add beef, onion & garlic. Cook 8-10 minutes or until cooked through, crumbling meat throughout.  
  2. Add celery, carrots, tomato paste, Italian seasoning & basil. Mix well. Cover & cook 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Add broth & milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low & add pasta. Cook 15-20 minutes or until pasta is cooked, stirring occasionally. 
  4. Remove from heat & stir in 3/4 cup parmesan cheese. Serve topped with remaining parmesan.


No beef? No problem! Swap for another lean ground meat like turkey, chicken, or pork.
