  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 cups zucchini, cubed or sliced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Crumble sausage into a heavy Dutch oven.

  12. Remove chicken pieces. Bone, remove skin and chop meat.
  13. Add zucchini to soup and cook another 20 minutes.
  14. When zucchini is just tender, add chicken back to soup and serve.
