  • 1 pound bulk spicy Italian sausage
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • Morton kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 large zucchini, cut in half lengthwise then cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
  • 1 (12-to 16-ounce) bag refrigerated cheese ravioli, such as Rana


  • Cook sausage in a very large pot over medium-high heat, breaking up into chunks with a wooden spoon, until cooked through and browned, 5–6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a bowl; reserve drippings in pot.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with large shreds of Parmesan cheese and fresh basil (optional).



Fat content of sausage can vary widely. You're looking for about 2 tablespoons of drippings to cook the onion and mushrooms in. If it's more than 2 tablespoons, feel free to ditch some of the drippings. If it's less, add a drizzle of olive oil or a pat of butter.
If you don't have dried oregano, dried Italian seasoning will work. 
For extra veggies, consider adding some fresh spinach. 
Finish the soup with fresh parsley if you don't have basil for serving.
