Minestrone soup

I'm wanting to make some minestrone soup and am searching for Alison Holst's recipe but that book has gone missing during many moves.

Does anyone have a good recipe they would recommend?

1 onions (preferably sweet), diced
4 – 8 oz. diced pancetta (I use 8 oz.)
3 carrots, diced/sliced
2 stalks celery plus its leaves, cleaned and diced/sliced
2 cans (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
2 potatoes, cut into chunks about ¼” thick
1 zucchini, diced with skin left on
1 cups fresh cabbage, chopped
1 can cannellini beans, drained
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed well
4 – 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 ‘bunch’ of Italian parsley, chopped
freshly cracked salt and pepper to taste
1 cup orzo pasta
freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving
sauté the chopped onions .
Add the carrots, celery and pancetta.
Gently stir all of these ingredients and sauté for about 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients. Place the lid on and simmer.
Add the pasta into the hot soup and allow it to cook with the lid off until the pasta is ‘al dente’.
garnish with parsley and freshly-grated cheese
