Ground beef, vegetables, and broken spaghetti noodles are simmered in a rich tomato sauce to make this fun dinner dish. We love spaghetti and soup so this is a great combination. Great for those chili autumn evenings. I serve with garlic toast.

1. In large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook meat, onion, sweet pepper, celery, carrot, and garlic over medium heat until vegetables are tender and meat is no longer pink. Drain off excess fat.
