Brown your ground beef in a large skillet or pan. Make sure you break up the meat well. Drain fat.
Place your carrots in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Place your celery on top of the carrots.
Now top with the cooked beef, soup mix, salad dressing mix, and salt.
Now add your water, tomatoes with juice, tomato sauce, soy sauce, and sugar. Mix well.
Turn your slow cooker on low and let cook for about 6 to 8 hours.
Now stir in your cooked pasta and parmesan cheese. Cook for another 15 to 30 minutes on high.
Sprinkle with fresh parmesan and/or parsley if desired.
Serve with a smile.
