In a large pot or dutch oven brown the ground beef until cooked through. Drain the fat.
Combine the cooked beef with the next 12 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 hour or until vegetables are tender.
Add the cabbage, macaroni and parsley. Cook 20 minutes more or until the cabbage is tender. We like to sprinkle fresh grated parmesan over our individual servings and serve with fresh french bread if desired.
