Hamburger Soup

One day when we had thawed hamburger that had to be used, we came up with this recipe for Hamburger Soup.  It's so incredibly simple that every time I make it I feel like I've forgotten something.  It takes about 5-10 minutes to put together and then it cooks for about 20 minutes.  A genuine 30 minute meal.  Rachael Rae would be jealous.

1 pound hamburger
1 small onion, diced
1 small package frozen mixed vegetables
2 cartons beef stock
3 medium cans tomato sauce
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
salt & pepper
8 oz Acini di pepe pasta

Brown hamburger and onion together.  Drain grease if necessary.  Add veggies, stock, tomato sauce, beans, salt and pepper.  Cook until veggies are almost done.  Add pasta and cook until tender.  Serve Italian style with grated Parmesan cheese or Mexican style with cilantro and sour cream.
