  There are as many versions of vegetable soup in Italy as there there are
  cooks. Pancetta - Pancetta is the same cut of pork as bacon. It is cured
  with salt and is not smoked.  It comes rolled up like a large salami.
  Widely used in Italian cooking, especially in Emilia-Romagna, it is vital
  to many dishes.  If available, buy a large quantity. Cut into several
  pieces and freeze it.  You can substitute domestic bacon for pancetta. It
  must be blanched in boiling water for two three minutes to reduce the smoky
  flavour.  Fresh side pork can also be used. I'll be posting several recipes
  over the next while that call for pancetta, so if you can find some, it
  won't go to waste. Prepare chicken broth.
  Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add parsley and garlic. Saute over medium
  heat.  Before garlic changes colour, add pancetta.  Saute until lightly
  browned.  Stir in cabbage.  Cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add remaining
  vegetables to saucepan.  Cover and cook about 5 minutes. Add broth and
  water, if using, and prosciutto rind or ham shank. Cover and reduce heat.
  Simmer 40 to 50 minutes.  Remove half the vegetables with a slotted spoon.
  Place in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Return to
  saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot with Parmesan cheese
  sprinkled over top.  Makes 8 to 10 servings. VARIATION: Toast about 20
  thick slices of Italian bread.  Place 2 slices in each soup bowl and
  sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese. Ladle soup into bowls. Serve with
  additional Parmesan cheese.
