Soup Ingredients

This zucchini soup recipe is so easy with just a few ingredients, it’s why I’ve chosen to make it over and over again. Here is the simple ingredient list:

  • fresh zucchini
  • ground sausage
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder/salt
  • cans tomato sauce
  • diced peeled tomatoes
  • butter
  • onion powder
  • colby jack cheese

You just cook the sausage and zucchini and then combine all of the ingredients into a pot and let them simmer until hot.  It is that easy!

Holiday Lunch

My mom introduced this soup to me a few years ago and I just love it.  It means even more now that my mom is no longer with us. And I love having a few close friends over to eat my zucchini sausage soup. The soup is even red and green.  Perfect for Christmas!

Recipe Notes

*I don’t like onions, so I use onion salt, but for the lovers, you can cook them with meat or zucchini. This is for 4-5 people, I double this for a group of 10. Very hearty and filling!
