2 tbsp olive oil
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 leek, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
16 oz | 3 cups ground pork
1 tbsp tomato paste
7 oz | 1 cup orzo pasta
44 fl oz | 5 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium
4 1/2 oz | 1 cup string beans, diced
2 oz | 1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

1 Heat oil in large saucepan set over a moderate heat until hot. Stir in zucchini, leek, garlic and a pinch of salt, sweating for 7-8 minutes.
