Minestrone Soup

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!!
4 oz salt pork (I've also used sausage which works)
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.
