Easy Italian Sausage Soup

My husband, for some reason, seems to have the best power over making me like new foods that I don't like...or maybe I'm just a whiz in the kitchen and all the recipes I make are delicious. I think we'll go with the latter :) I hated sausage up until about a year ago. Would not touch it with a ten foot pole. I'm still working on breakfast sausage, but I will devour some Italian sausage! It's my favorite in meatballs and soups.

I love a soup that has spinach and zucchini in it as well. They are my two favorite veggies. I could eat them every day for the rest of my life. They are amazing veggies. This soup was everything I could've asked for and more.

My husband is usually a stickler for breaking up meat into smaller pieces (which his mom is like an expert at)...but I didn't bother to try and microcrumble this sausage and he didn't complain.
