Pasta Fagioli Soup

This is supposed to taste exactly like Olive Garden's Pasta Fagioli Soup.

2 Pounds Ground Beef
1 Onion, Chopped
3 Carrots, Chopped
4 Stalk Celery, Chopped
2 (28 oz.) Cans Diced Tomatoes Italian Style, Undrained
1 (16 oz.) Can Red Kidney Beans, Drained
1 (16 oz.) Can White Kidney Beans, Drained
3 (10 oz.) Cans Beef Broth
3 Teaspoons Oregano
2 Teaspoons Pepper
5 Teaspoons Parsley
1 Teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
1 (20 oz.) Jar Prego Tradional Style Spaghetti Sauce
8 Ounces Orozo Pasta

Brown hamburger and onion in a skillet. Drain fat from beef. Add all ingredients, except the pasta, to a crockpot. This makes a HUGE batch. Cook on low 7-8 hours or high 4-5 hours. During the last 30 minutes on high, add cooked pasta.
