Pasta E Fagioli Soup in a Crock Pot

One of my husbands favorite soups is Pasta E Fagioli. The cafeteria where we work makes a fantastic rendition that he just loves. While I do not have the time for the full fledged version (we have a 2 hour a day commute to and from work), I have a crockpot version I make him.

2 lbs ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 (28 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (16 ounce) can white kidney beans, drained
3 (10 ounce) cans beef stock

2 teaspoons pepper
5 teaspoons parsley
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (optional)
1 (20 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
8 ounces pasta
