Italian Sausage Zucchini Soup

Yeah... It's that time of year again... The time when everybody and their dog has zucchini coming out of their ears. It's also the only time of year when people in small towns lock their doors. *snicker*

So anyway, I have been scouring my Taste of Home app for zucchini recipes so we can have something other than the ever popular Zucchini Bread. *snort* So I came across this one recipe, scanned the ingredients and my mind started running off with ideas. Here's what fell in my soup pot tonight. Enjoy!

1 lb. Italian sausage
1 medium or 2 small(ish) zucchinis, sliced
2 yellow summer squash, sliced
1 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pt. diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
1 c. water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. pepper

Brown the sausage, add to a large stockpot with all the other stuff. Being to a boil, turn the heat down and summer until the veggies are all soft. YUMMY!!
