Mom's Minestrone Soup

This soup is delicious and guilt free! The recipe makes a lot so you can freeze some for later or share with your neighbors.  
1-2 lbs ground beef or turkey, browned 
1 onion, chopped
1 quart stewed tomatoes (I cut them into smaller pieces) 
2 c. chopped cabbage 
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 can kidney beans 
1 can garbanzo beans (neither drained) 
1-2 c. corn 
zuchinni (optional)
4 c. water
1/2 c. red wine vinegar
2 tsp. beef boullion (2 cubes)
1/3 c. barley
1/2 tsp. of the following...salt, basil, oregano, & marjoram 

Combine all ingredients in large pot. Simmer for an hour or until veggies are slightly tender. Top with parmesan cheese (a must)
