Italian Zucchini Soup Recipe

This recipe was given to me by my neighbor. Nice and simple, it's a good way to use a lot of your zucchini and other garden vegetables. It freezes well and is great to have on hand on a cold winter day.

MY REVIEW

Yummy! I used Hot Italian sausage, and added 2+Cups of chicken stock,, as somebody suggested. The Hot sausage made it quite hot, but once the zucchini was added, it tempered the heat a bit. Still spicy, though, but we like some heat. Froze some for winter meal. Will make again.

Really good recipe. First time I made this recipe I substituted five pieces of smokey bacon for the sausage added two cups of chicken stock and one tablespoon of chili flakes. Sorry I also added three cups of Cannellini Beans to make up for the missing texture of the sausage. Great depth of flavours. Awesome soup and a great use of zucchini
