5 cups water
1 stalk celery chopped
1 onion chopped
1 medium green pepper chopped
2 cups finely chopped cabbage
2 carrots chopped
2 medium potatoes chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cups cooked macaroni (if you don't have this already cooked, add it with the first batch of ingredients after the soup has been cooking for 5 minutes)
1 1/2 cups cooked pinto beans or navy beans
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce


In a large pot, bring the water, celery, onion, green pepper, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, and parsley to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the noodles, beans, and tomato sauce to the soup, and cook for 5 more minutes.

Turn off the heat and serve. This is good with nutritional yeast as a garnish.
