Italian Pasta and Bean Soup

This Italian standard, served with fresh bread and a salad, is a meal in itself.
Serves: 8 or more
Heat the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the onion, garlic, carrot, and celery, and sauté over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the onion is golden.
Add the beans, 6 cups water, zucchini, bay leaves, herb mix, and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer, then simmer gently, covered, until the zucchini is just tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the soup to stand for an hour or so to develop flavor.
In a separate saucepan, cook the pasta until al dente. Rinse briefly under cool water until it stops steaming. Add the parsley to the soup and heat it through. When the soup is hot, add the cooked pasta. Adjust the consistency with more water if too thick, and season with salt and pepper. Serve at once.
