Minestrone Soup

I believe that this is a Taste of Home recipe.  It was VERY good.  I made it for dinner tonight but it did made a huge stock pot full of soup.  I recommend halving it.  I wasn't a huge fan of the garbanzo beans.  I'll leave those out next time.  I added a can of drained corn and that was absolutely delightful.  And as for the macaroni, I felt like it was a hassle and it really didn't add much to the soup at all.  I'll be leaving those out next time too.  I think this recipe would work excellently in a crock pot.

1 lb. pork sausage
2 cloves garlic
2 onions, chopped
4 c. carrots, sliced
2 c. celery, sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
2 28-oz. large cans tomatoes
28 oz. can beef broth (or bouillon)
2 c. fresh mushrooms
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 tsp. basil
3/4 tsp. oregano
1 can green beans, rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 handful of macaroni

Notes / Directions
Break up sausage in large stockpot and pour 1 quart boiling water over. Begin
simmering. Add the rest of the above ingredients except green beans, garbanzo beans, and macaroni, and simmer two hours.

One hour before serving add the green beans and garbanzo beans.  Add macaroni for the last 20 minutes of simmering.
