  1. Heat oil in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add sausage and brown, occasionally stirring to break into smaller pieces, approximately 5 minutes.
  2. Add onion, garlic, celery, carrots, and seasoning. Cook until softened, about 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the broth, tomatoes, and beans. Simmer over medium-low heat, covered, for 20-25 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Stir in zucchini and basil and simmer for 10 minutes or until the zucchini is cooked. Taste the soup and add more seasonings if needed.
  5. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a separate pot according to package instructions. Drain and set aside until ready to serve.
  6. It’s time to eat! Ladle soup into bowls, add ¼ - ½ cup of pasta to the bowls, and top with a sprinkle of fresh parmesan. Enjoy!
