This is a family tradition when the zucchinis are ready. This soup has won first prize in our local county fair. It's not to strongly zucchini flavored, and has a fabulous italian flavor. I have NEVER found anyone who dislikes this soup, try it you'll see!!

Yummy soup. I thought I would miss the addition of carrots and celery, but I didn't. I used spicy Italian sausage and gave it a good rinse after browning just to get a good bit of the fat removed. The soup turned out really flavorful. I think next time I'll double the zucchini and use half the amount of sausage. Thanks for sharing this simple, flexible and delicious recipe.

I thoroughly enjoyed this soup (for lunch) and DH will be surprised and delighted this evening at supper to find sausage in his soup. I didn't add any onions, then added some carrots, frozen spinach, and corn. I also added 2 tsp of Canadian Steak Seasoning (salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and much more). I am serving this tonight with some grilled flatbread. . .yummy! Thanks for a keeper.
