Using a 6 quart stockpot, heat enough olive oil to cover bottom of pot over a medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until soft but not brown. Add the carrots, potatoes and zucchinis. Cook until vegetables are slightly tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cabbage and incorporate until wilted down. Stir in tomatoes, beans and broth. Cover and bring to a slow boil. Add the pasta, reduce heat, cover and cook for 10 more minutes, until the pasta is al dente. Remove from heat. Stir in spinach, herbs, salt and pepper. Remember to taste to ensure proper seasoning.
Serve with crackers or toasted slices of a good French bread.
