DIRECTIONS

  • (To prep fennel, carefully cut off and discard stalks. Remove any wilted outer layers and cut a thin slice from the base of the bulb. Cut out and discard the tough core. Cut the fennel bulb into quarters. Chop quarters into 1/2-inch pieces.).
  • (To prep asparagus, start at the base end of each spear and bend the spear until you find a place where it breaks easily. Break off the woody base and discard. If desired, use a knife or vegetable peeler to remove the tiny scales from the stalk.).
  • In a 4-quart Dutch oven over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion, fennel, and garlic; cook for 8-10 minutes or until onion is tender and starts to caramelize, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in asparagus, zucchini and tomatoes. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 5 minutes or more or just until zucchini is tender.
  • Stir in the 2 tablespoons snipped basil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve in soup bowls. If desired, sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese and additional fresh basil.
