Cook pasta according to directions. Drain and set aside.

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, leeks, celery and garic. Saute 10 minutes. Add a tablespoon of water as the vegetables begin to stick to the bottom of the pan.

Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, broth and water, 1 T of the fresh basil or all of the dried and the oregano. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Add the pasta and white beans; simmer 5 minutes.
