Italian Tortellini Soup

For a church activity I had to make some soup. I decide to make some tortellini soup. I found a few recipes for it but decide to make up my own. This turned out really well and I got asked for the recipe many times.
Italian Tortellini Soup
1 lb hamburger
2 T. garlic
1 onion chopped
3-4 stalks celery, chopped
1 green pepper or I used about 10 mini sweet peppers(yellow, red, and orange)
1-2 cups carrots, chopped
2-3 zucchini, chopped
2 large cans of crushed tomatoes
1 (6 0z) can tomatoe paste
8 cups beef broth(or 8 cups water and 10 tsp beef bouillon)
4 cubes beef bouillon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 1/2 T, parsley
1 tsp basil
1 pkg. Good Seasonings Italian dressing mix or Roasted red pepper and basil dip (if you can find it just use one or the other)
1 can tomato soup(normal size can)
1 to 2 cans Drained pinto beans
20 oz of cheese tortellini (cooked)
Brown your hamburger. Drain the grease. Add the onions, garlic, celery, carrot, and peppers Saute until veggies are starting to get tender. Add all the rest of the ingredients except the tortellini and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer until veggies are cooked all the way. (I simmered mine for about 1 hour) Then add the tortellini and serve with bread or rolls.

Looks delicious! This would be great for the cold, rainy weather we've been having here lately.
