Pasta Fazool

This soup is really great in the winter.
Brown a large package of hamburger and 2 chopped up onions in a dutch oven.
Sprinkle in a tablespoon of flour and stir.
Next, pour in 2 large cans of beef broth.
Add 2 tablespoons of roasted garlic, a cup of corn, a cup of peas, a cup of green beans,
a cup of shredded carrots, and a small can of tomato paste.
If you want to spice it up a bit, add a tablespoon of my Asian hot sauce.
Cook for about 4 hours on low heat.
When serving, add some cooked Ditalini pasta and grated parmesan cheese.
(Don't add the pasta while the soup is cooking, because it will absorb the liquid
and expand the pasta to an enourmous size.)
