1 cup diced celery (about 3 stalks)
3/4 cup chopped yellow onion (about 1/2 of a large)
1 large clove garlic, finely minced
3 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce

Add cooked and drained pasta to soup along with kidney beans, great northern beans and an additional 1 cup broth if desired to thin soup, and allow to cook 5 minutes longer. 
Serve warm with grated Romano cheese if desired.

The longer the soup rests more liquid the pasta will absorb so you can thin it with additional beef broth if desired.
