Ingredients


buttery cooking spray

2 14-ounce packages veggie sausage
(We used Lightlife - Gimme Lean Meatless Veggie Sausage.)

2 cups celery, chopped

2 pounds zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch slices

2 cans (28 ounces each) no salt added diced tomatoes

2 green bell peppers, chopped

1 cup chopped onion

1 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. dried oregano, ground

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1 tsp. dried basil, ground

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

6 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


This recipe is higher in sodium. If you're on a low-sodium diet, you might want to consider another option.

A friend who wanted to eat more vegetables sent us the original version of this recipe (with Italian sausage) from Allrecipes.com. We simply swapped out the sausage for a veggie version and our tasting panel loved it! We think you will too.

1. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat the pan with buttery cooking spray, then break up the sausage, cooking and stirring until it's lightly browned and crumbly. That takes 5-7 minutes.

2. Lightly coat the sausage with more buttery cooking spray, stir the celery in and cook until it's softened, about 10 more minutes.

3. Pour the veggie sausage mixture and remaining 9 ingredients, zucchini through garlic powder into a large slow cooker. Stir everything together, cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

4. Divide into 6 or 8 servings and top each one with a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.

Yield: 6 or 8 Servings (Depending on how you divide it up.)
