Italian Sausage Zucchini Soup, Slow Cooker Style

Some nights, you need something that is easy to make. The crock pot comes in to play here. A lot of times we will try to rework a recipe we already have for the crock pot, so we can focus on other things. Last weekend we did that with Italian Sausage Zucchini Soup. Check out the original recipe here.

The Recipe
  • 1 Package Italian Sausage - Sliced
  • 2 Onions - Diced
  • 2 Zucchini - Sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 1/2 Cups Merlot
  • 2 15 oz Cans Whole Tomatoes
  • 2 Boxes Beef Broth
  • 1 Teaspoon Basil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves - Diced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chopped Parsley
  • Pasta - Penne, Farfalle, and Rigatoni work really well

Brown the sausage in a pan. Sauté the onion and garlic in the juices left from the sausage. Combine all the ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours. If time permits, add the pasta about 30 minutes in. This will help keep the pasta from over cooking. 

Happy eating.
