Lynn H. brought this for our Relief Society Christmas dinner at my house-it was so good that I wanted to know exactly how she made it! She wrote it out by hand and gave it to me. Seriously, so good!!
brown in 2T butter or olive oil along with 4 cloves of minced garlic
2 large carrots, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 potato, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
Saute for several minutes then add 6 cups chicken broth, and 4 cups beef broth and 1 can tomato paste.
Season with 5 T. dried parsley, 1 T. oregano, 1 T. basil, 1 1/2 tsp pepper, salt to taste.
Bring to a boil and simmer until vegetables are about 1/2 way cooked-about 10 minutes.
Then add :
3 cups finely chopped cabbage
2 zucchini, cubed
1 can garbanzo beans
1/2 c. small shell pasta
(I also added a can of diced tomatoes in their juice)
Boil until pasta is done. Serve topped with grated parmesan cheese.
