In a large pot, over Medium heat, cook the ground beef.
Drain the liquid from the cooked beef (if any). If you use ground beef with a lower fat ratio then you will have little to no liquid to drain.
Stir in the chopped onions, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, red and white kidney beans (with the liquid).
Season with the salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and thyme and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
When the soup has 10 minutes left to simmer, cook the ditalini pasta in boiling water for 7 minutes or until a bit firmer than al dente. Do not over cook the pasta.
Drain the pasta and stir it into the soup. Simmer for 10 more minutes.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator or in the freezer.
