Yield: 6

Ingredients (Help):
2 1/2 lb Blade chuck roast OR 1/4 c Onion, diced
Meaty soup bones 1/4 c Parsley, chopped
2 1/2 qt Water 1 Clove garlic, minced
2 ts Salt 1/2 c (2 oz) elbow macaroni
1 sm Onion 1 cn (6 oz) tomato paste
1/2 c Celery leaves 1 c COCA-COLA
1 Bay leaf 1 tb Olive oil
2 Slices, bacon, diced 1 tb Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 c Kidney beans 1 tb Italian seasoning
1/2 c Green beans, fresh/chopped 1 ts Salt
1/2 c Celery, diced 1/4 ts Black pepper
1/2 c Green peas Parmesan cheese,
1/2 c Zucchini, thinly sliced Grated (optional)
1/2 c Carrots, thinly sliced

In a large pan, place the meat, water, salt, small onion, celery leaves,
and bay leaf. Cover and simmer about 2-1/2 hours until the meat is tender.
Remove the meat. Strain the broth (should measure 2 quarts). Add ice cubes
to the broth to harden the fat and remove the fat. Discard the fat.

Finely dice the meat, discarding any fat and bones (should be about 2
cups). In a 5 to 6 quart kettle or Dutch oven, combine the beef broth and
the meat. Place over low heat while preparing the rest of the ingredients.

Pan-fry the bacon until crisp. Add the bacon and the drippings and all the
remaining ingredients, except Parmesan cheese, to the broth. Cover and
simmer about 30 minutes, until the vegetables and macaroni are tender.
Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Makes about 3 quarts.
