Easy Vegetable Soup with Italian Sausage

This easy Italian Vegetable Soup has been on repeat at our house. Vegetable soup loaded with pasta and Italian sausage. It is SO good and SUPER easy to make. It only takes about 30 minutes on the stovetop and you are ready to eat. Serve the soup with some breadsticks or cornbread and dinner is done! We’ve made this several times over the past few weeks and can’t get enough of it!

How to Make Italian Vegetable Soup

As I said, this soup is super easy to make. Start with browning some Italian sausage, fresh mushrooms, and chopped onion. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink. Add garlic, tomatoes, tomato soup, and water. Let the soup simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients – kidney beans, carrots, green beans, zucchini, and pasta. Simmer for an additional 15 minutes and eat!

  • If you aren’t a fan of Italian sausage, you can substitute turkey sausage, ground beef, or ground turkey. Heck, you can leave it out altogether if you want a vegetarian dish.
  • You can substitute vegetable broth for the water in the soup for extra flavor.
  • Can Vegetable Soup be Made in the Slow Cooker? Yes! If you want an all-day soup, feel free to cook this soup in the slow cooker. Cook the sausage, onion, and mushrooms. Transfer to the slow cooker and add remaining ingredients except for the pasta. Stir in the pasta about 15 minutes before serving.
  • Can You Freeze Vegetable Soup? Yes! You can freeze any leftover soup for a quick meal later. You may need to add some water or broth when reheating because the pasta will absorb some of the liquid. 
    • If you are making a big batch of this soup to freeze for later, I suggest freezing it without the pasta mixed in. When ready to eat the soup, thaw and add the uncooked pasta when reheating the soup on the stove.
