Italian Zucchini Soup
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 1 hour 20 min.
I kept feeling like the broth was missing somewhere? Maybe my garden tomatoes weren’t juicy enough but this was turning out more like a hash than a soup! I just added plenty of chicken broth and since I didn’t have as much sausage as I would have liked I also cooked in some bow tie pasta. The seasoning was on point and with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and zucchini you really can’t go wrong! Added a couple bay leaves as well and the whole family loved it! Dropped a star only because I think the broth is missing from the recipe!
How would I do this in an instapot? We love this soup but it is time consuming and always takes much longer than expected, though worth it. it is even better the next day.
I loved it - thank you! I took out the sugar, added broth and switched for quick chicken sausage. • 1 cup chopped onion • 4-5 links of Italian chicken sausage (no-sugar-added/ already cooked) • 2 cups chopped celery • 1 medium green pepper, chopped (sub other peppers) • 1 teaspoon dried basil • 1 teaspoon dried oregano • 1/4teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon pepper • 4 cups (32 ounces) canned diced tomatoes, undrained • 2 cups broth (vegetable or chicken) • 4 cups diced zucchini Method: 1. In a large pan, saute onion until translucent. 2. Add the rest of the ingredients except for the zucchini; cover and simmer 1 hour. 3. Stir in zucchini and simmer 10 minutes.
Initially, I made half the recipe and used "mild" Italian sausage. No Parmesan. My family loved this recipe! Dad said it was the best soup I've ever made - Yea!
I’ve been making this, (or some version of it, depending what ingredients I have on hand) for years. I make a huge pot and freeze portions to pull out whenever I have a taste, or need something quick for dinner or lunch.
I made this but added 3 large cloves of smashed garlic and 2 C of dry white wine, which took away the need for the sugar. Because I used home canned tomatoes (3 pts) I omitted the salt. Also, I added 1 can of chicken broth and 1/2 can of water. Really gr8 recipe!!!
Soup is very good, but way too salty. Can't imagine adding chicken stock and making it even saltier. Perhaps there is a typo on the amount of salt to add, will use 1/2 tsp next time.
Really nice flavor, I added 32 oz of vegetable broth since there was no liquid in the recipe.
I had roma tomatoes on hand, not really juicy, but for the simmering part there was no liquid to simmer. Maybe it meant two cups of canned diced tomatoes? I added two cups of beef broth. I also cut the recipe in half.
Fantastic, flavorful soup! I added black beans and cannellini beans and 2 cups chicken broth.
