  5. 5. Bring to a simmer and cook with the pot half covered for about 30 minutes (or until all the vegetables are fork tender).
  6. 6. While the soup is simmering, run the zucchini squash through a spiralizer to make noodles. . If you don’t have one, get one! OR, you can also use a potato peeler. It’s just not quite the same, or diced will work too. After about 20 min, add the zucchini to the pot.
