"This is great as thick soup served with French bread or served over rice or noodles. Better the next day!" — JENNIFER0320

1 1/2 pounds
sweet Italian sausage
1/2-inch pieces celery
zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch slices
2 (28 ounce) cans
green bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch slices
grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
Loved this soup! I did use hot Italian turkey sausage out of the casing. I used 2 (15oz) cans of diced tomatoes with garlic and oregano instead of the 2 (28oz)cans. I also added 4c of fat free low sodium chicken broth to this....how else is it a soup if there is no broth or liquid? I did add small diced carrots to the onion and celery and used a frozen bag of red, yellow and green peppers that were sliced, 2 medium zucchini and I added a can of drained and rinsed small white beans. Very hearty and delicious. I ate mine with red hot pepper flakes, pecorino romano and a few crunchy croutons. Thanks!
Used spicy Italian sausage, otherwise wouldn't recommend any changes on the recipe! So far I have created open-faced sandwich with a toasted sesame bun, mixed it with Orecchiette pasta, and as a soup with oyster crackers. Always with Parmesan cheese please! Made it on Monday night and ate great the whole week. Thank you Jennifer!
Loved this, but did do a few changes. I used the Italian sausage out of the casing, and all the other ingredients. I did add a box of vegetable broth from Trader Joes, which made it a soup rather than stew. And I added light red kidney bean, as well as a can of cannellini beans. This soup had wonderful flavors and was visually appealing as well. A great family meal, or a perfect meal for guests.
A new favorite in our house. My husband and I love this recipe! I left out the sausage and used a can of Progresso Roasted Tomato Recipe Starters and a can of regular tomato sauce in place of cans of diced tomatoes.
This was awesome! I usually add seasonings to all my dishes. I prepped this the night before and put it on the next day before work. I came home expecting to modify it but it was perfect as is. The blend of flavors is just perfect. I'll definitely be making this often. Thank you for a great way to enjoy my garden veggies!!
So long meatballs subs, hello zucchini heaven! Followed the recipe, except I used only 1 lb of bulk sweet Italian sausage (what I had on hand) and 6 cloves crushed, minced garlic in place of garlic powder (there's no such thing as too much garlic...) Personally, I feel that this recipe would be more appropriately used as sandwich filling. It makes for a very thick stew. First, I served it in bowls with some Italian bread on the side and halfway through the meal realized it was spectacular with the bread. The next day, I bought sub rolls and we had sandwiches for lunch... I will never go back to plain old meatball subs! The flavors were wonderful and it's packed with veggies!
This soup was really good! I pretty much stuck with the recipe except I used hot turkey sausage instead of sweet Italian. I also did not saute the celery but just cooked the sausage and threw everything else in the slow cooker. It made a very thick stew like soup and the spices made it very tasty. Very healthy dish also which is always a plus. Will make it again!
