Great way to use up your zucchini! I doubled the recipe, threw in a couple extra sausages, cup back a little on the water and used crushed peppers in mine for a little kick. The potatoes took a little longer to cook then stated, but smelled, looked and tasted great. I had to thank my husband for finding this one!1
I did make some changes to this - more sausage, more potato, more zucchini, chicken broth instead of just water and some tomato paste. I was trying for a stovetop version of a similar recipe I made in the crockpot. I thought this cooked too long as the vegetables were pretty much mush by the time I ate it. I probably won't make it again - I'll probably go back to my crock pot recipe.
I thought this was great! I use 3 hot italian sausages, 2 medium zucchini and add a couple of shakes of crushed red pepper. Don't forget the crusty french bread for dipping and a little parmesan to top off the hot stew!
I actually forgot to add the water and we still loved it! The potatoes were slightly undercooked (probably due to no water) so I'll add just a little next time... but only a few oz. because we liked it chunky and flavorful.
Great recipe I added a little cayanne and some crushed red pepper ,just to give it a little kick.
I absolutely love this recipe and make it several time during the summer. Using hot italian sausage definitely adds some kick, and instead of using water, add a can of chicken broth or tomato sauce for extra flavor.
Lots of great veggies - broth was a little bit bland, and needed quite a bit of salt, but otherwise it was a great soup to use with fresh veggies (I also used fresh green beans rather than canned).
We really enjoyed this recipe. Great use of the garden veggies. May freeze some and save it for winter. Used Hot Italian Sausage for a little kick. Also made in crockpot.
