Brown hamburger with onions, green peppers, and celery. While the hamburger is browning cook carrots in small amounts of water. Place meat in large pot adding the tomato juice, spices, bouillon cube, cooked carrots, and beans. Heat to boil then add noodles and cook for 20 minutes or until the noodles are cooked. Add 1 can tomato paste if you want the soup to be thick. Serve with parmesan cheese as a garnish.
Note: Since 3 cans of beans makes the soup so large, I use only 1/2 can of each and make the 3 bean salad with the other 1/2. I also coot carrots when I make Orange glazed carrots.
