My Southern Mama's Italian Vegetable Soup



Brown beef in a large heavy kettle; drain.
Add all the ingredients except macaroni.
Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add macaroni, bring to a boil again and simmer until vegetables are tender.
*At this point you'll want to taste for salt; the original recipe calls for 1 tsp but I think that's a bit too much.
Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese before serving.
