I love a filling one-pot meal, and soup is a great place to pack in a wide variety of colorful vegetables. This hearty, veggie-filled soup with Italian sausage is a nice change from the usual and one I make whenever the weather is cool enough.

Goal for this year: Freeze my garden zucchini (which is always plentiful) so I can make this soup all year while keeping it local and organic (for cheap!).

Hearty Italian Sausage Soup Loaded With Vegetables

Meals that can be cooked and served all in one dish are my absolute favorite kind. Soups are usually that kind of meal. (Do a happy dance for fewer dishes!) The key to pulling off any one-pot meal is packing in lots of veggies and a good protein.

For the vegetables in this soup I use zucchini and yellow squash from the garden, since I always have more of these than I know what to do with! I also add carrots and Italian stewed canned tomatoes. Finally, I toss in some fresh spinach right at the end. If that combination doesn’t appeal to you, you can absolutely switch some of them out, but my crew likes it.

If I’m feeling ambitious and don’t mind a few more dishes since I didn’t dirty very many making dinner, my coconut flour biscuits go really well with this soup.

More One-Pot Suggestions

If you need some more one pot meal ideas or just really love soup, give some of these a try. If it’s an Instant Pot recipe and you don’t have one, it’s usually pretty easy to adapt it to the stove-top just by covering and simmering until tender.
