Zucchini Sausage Soup

1 lb sweet Italian sausage

1 large onion, chopped.

1  28 oz. can diced tomatoes (or equivalent amount of fresh tomatoes)

4 cups broth (I use homemade vegetable broth, but you can use whatever you have on hand)

5 cups diced zucchini (about 2 medium-large)

1 T chopped fresh basil (or 1 tsp. dried)

1 tsp. fennel seed

Water

Salt

In a large pot, brown the sausage in a little bit of oil. Add the onion and continue cooking until translucent. Add the tomatoes, broth, zucchini, basil, and fennel seed. If you happen to have a fennel bulb on hand, you can chop that up and add it, too. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat, and let simmer until the zucchini is cooked, adding water as necessary. Add salt to taste.
