This recipe requires only 9 ingredients and comes together in about 30 minutes, perfect for summer days when you are busy enjoying the nice weather and don't want to spend all night in the kitchen. Basil and parmesan cheese each add their own bold flavors to the soup and perfectly accent the mild zucchini.
