In a large stock pot prepared with olive oil over medium high heat, add sausage and onion. Cook until the sausage is browned, and then add garlic. Stir for a minute. Remove sausage from pan.
Add a little more olive oil to pan, and add potatoes, carrots, and celery, along with salt, pepper, onion powder, and Italian Seasoning. Cook for about 7-8 minutes, stirring often. Then add crushed tomatoes and chicken broth, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium, add sausage back to the pot, and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until veggies are softened. Then add the zucchini and spinach leaves, and cook for another 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat.
